LOS ANGELES (AP) — The Latest on a child pornography case filed against actor Mark Salling, who was one of the stars of the Fox series “Glee” (all times local):

3:20 p.m.

Actor Mark Salling has pleaded not guilty to federal child pornography charges and has been granted bail.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Rozella Oliver ruled the 33-year-old former star of the Fox series “Glee” can be released after posting $150,000 bail.

Salling answered several questions from Oliver and said he would abide by restrictions of his release, including refraining from using the Internet without permission from federal officials.

Salling was arrested last December after Los Angeles police officers 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 child porn videos that also featured young girls.

10:50 a.m.

Actor Mark Salling has surrendered to federal authorities and is awaiting arraignment on a child pornography case.

Deputy U.S. Marshal Matthew Cordova says Salling and his attorney are at a downtown Los Angeles courthouse awaiting the “Glee” actor’s court appearance Friday afternoon. Salling played Noah “Puck” Puckerman on the musical dramedy and was indicted last week on two charges of receiving and possessing child pornography.

Federal prosecutors are asking that the 33-year-old actor remain in custody until his trial.

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.
