Salling finally made a plea deal in the damning charges against him, RadarOnline.com can confirm.

According to U.S. District Court documents obtained by Radar, Salling, 35, is eligible for 20 years of prison and a lifetime of probation. However, as part of the plea deal, he likely will serve around 84 months, or 7 years, and 20 years of supervised release.

He also agreed to make “full restitution” of $50,000 to each of his victims, though full amount is subject to change.

According to the agreement, the troubled star will register as a sex offender, undergo psychological treatment and a sex offender program, which could include checking into an impatient facility.

He cannot communicate with anyone under the age of 18 unless the minor is accompanied by a parent or legal guardian, and is forbidden from coming within 100 feet of school yards, parks, playgrounds, arcades or swimming pools.

As part of his confession, Salling copped to downloading “thousands of images of child pornography” from his computer in his Los Angeles home.

Though he attempted to conceal his illegal behavior, he showed the horrific images to an “adult woman in the context of their sexual relationship.”

When authorities raided his home on a search warrant, they discovered more than 50,00 images and videos of child pornography and erotica.

As Radar previously reported last year, his pornography featured children as young as 5 years old.

The Blast was first to report the plea deal.
