After 'Glee' star Mark Salling's suicide, will his victims get restitution?
Salling died on Tuesday, January 30. He was found by a riverbed in Los Angeles, and was pronounced dead at the scene. The Assistant Chief of the Coroner says he is performing an autopsy to determine the official cause of death, but reports are circulating that it was a death by hanging.
Back in December, Salling pleaded guilty to to possession of child pornography involving a minor. His sentencing was set for March 7, but the 35-year-old actor struck a plea deal with prosecutors that included 4-7 years in jail, and registeration as a sex offender.
Salling was also ordered to pay his victims $50,000, but now lawyers fear they'll never see that money!
Experts say the amount of the restitution is determined by the sentencing judge, but Salling was not yet sentenced. Therefore, there will be no restitution order.
