His internet usage and travel have also been severely restricted with Salling having to give up his passport, reports The Guardian. The 33-year-old actor answered several questions from the judge before entering his plea and being assigned a July trial date.
Salling was "charged with two counts of receiving and possessing child abuse material after a grand jury indicted him last week. US Attorney’s spokesman Thom Mrozek said investigators found an extensive, carefully organised collection of child abuse images during searches of Salling’s electronic devices."
Remember: Salling was arrested inside his home back in December after the LAPD discovered child pornography images and videos and seized a laptop, hard drive and flash drive.
