LOS ANGELES — 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.
