LOS ANGELES, California — An actor who starred on the musical dramedy “Glee” is scheduled to turn himself in to federal authorities Friday in a child pornography case.

Mark Salling, who played bad-boy Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the series, is scheduled to be arraigned on two charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

The 33-year-old actor was indicted by a grand jury last week.

In December, Los Angeles police and federal agents seized a laptop, hard drive and flash drive they say contained images and videos depicting child pornography.

He was charged with one count of using the Internet to obtain a pornographic still image and video of young girls and a second count of possessing two other porn videos that also featured underage girls.

Salling’s publicist did not return an email seeking comment.

If convicted, Salling faces a mandatory minimum of five years in federal prison for one, charge, while both carry a maximum of 20 years.
