The child pornography case against Mark Salling has officially been dismissed.
A United States District Judge granted a request from the U.S. Attorney's office for dismissal, according to court documents filed Wednesday and obtained by E! News. Prosecutors requested to dismiss the case "without prejudice," meaning it could later be refiled.
Salling, who became known for his role on FOX series Glee in the mid-2000s, died from suicide at the age of 35 on Jan. 30. The actor was only weeks away from being sentenced for possession of child pornography, a charge first brought against him in 2015. Salling plead guilty and struck a plea deal in December 2017, agreeing to serve four to seven years behind bars with supervised release for 20 years.
He also agreed to register as a sex offender and pay $50,000 in restitution to each victim who requested it.
