DISGRACED Glee star Mark Salling’s victims may have been Brit youngsters, court documents obtained by Sun Online reveal.
The 35-year-old also had images of babies and toddlers being abused – and a sickening manual teaching adult men how to have sex with little girls, the disturbing court documents show.
Salling, who played bad boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman in the hit US show, faces four to eight years in prison after pleading guilty to possessing over 50,000 child abuse images and videos – earlier this week.
He must also pay out $50,000 to the child victims abused in the pictures and videos in his evil collection.
Now fears are growing that some of those victims may have been from the UK – after two out of the three examples of the child abuse found in his possession and cited in the documents are described as being “created” in the UK involving “known victims of child exploitation”.
The first example described in the papers is an image file depicting a “sickening sex act.
It added: “This image, which was created in the United Kingdom, depicts a known victim of child exploitation.”
The second of the three examples is described as a video also “created” in the UK and involving a “known vicim” of child exploitation.
In further shocking details, the Sun Online can also reveal that Salling had a sick manual saved on his laptop to teach him how to have sex with little girls.
The plea agreement, filed at the US District Court in Los Angeles on October 3rd, read: “Defendant also possessed on his laptop computer a document called ‘jazzguide’.
Shockingly he also had material which “portrayed sadistic or masochistic conduct and the sexual abuse.”
Authorities believe Salling began downloading “thousands of images of child pornography” in April 2015 from his home in Los Angeles County.
This continued until December 2015 – and the sick actor even tried to conceal his actions by using software that masked his IP address.
He was caught after showing some of the sickening images to an adult woman “in the context of their sexual relationship” on two occasions.
It’s believed the unknown woman then reported him to police.
More than 50,000 images and videos of “child pornography and child erotica” where found on Salling’s laptop and a further 4,000 images and 160 videos where found on a memory stick.
“In total, defendant’s collection consisted of approximately 25,000 still images of child pornography, approximately 600 videos of child pornography, and approximately 29,000 images of child erotica,” the documents say.
It adds: “Defendant’s child pornography and child erotica were highly organised by file name and folder structure.
“For example, one series of folders was named as follows: “[girl’s name] – 2y,” “[girl’s name] – 3y,” “[girl’s name] – 4y,” and “[girl’s name] – 6y.”
Salling has now agreed to register as a sex offender, stay away from under 18s and either go for psychological or psychiatric treatment or take part in a sex offender programme, as part of a plea deal.
He will also have to serve a prison sentence of between four and seven years with 20 years of supervised release.
The shamed star was previously sued by ex-girlfriend Roxanne Gorzela for sexual battery.
She claimed Salling forced her to have unprotected sex with him and then later, when she confronted him over his actions, he allegedly pushed her to the ground and caused injury to her knees.
The pair settled the case for a reported $2.7million (£2million) and Mark admitted to causing her to fall and injure herself through negligence.
There is no suggestion Gorzela knew anything about Salling’s secret paedophile activities.
