The case was dismissed “without prejudice” per the prosecutor’s request.
In the wake of Mark Salling’s suicide, the child pornography case against the actor has been dismissed.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, a U.S. District Judge granted the dismissal request from the U.S. Attorney’s office. However, the case was dismissed “without prejudice” per the prosecutor’s request, meaning that it can be refiled in the future.
Salling’s death came just a few weeks prior to his four-to-seven-year prison sentencing for possession of child pornography. The actor pleaded guilty in December and agreed to serve the jail time followed by 20 years of supervised release.
