The agreement says investigators acting under a search warrant found more than 50,000 images of child porn on Salling’s computer and a thumb drive.

Prosecutors and Salling have agreed to ask a judge to sentence the actor to a prison term of four to seven years.

He will also be required to register as a sex offender, pay restitution and abide by restrictions on where he can live.
