A judge has delayed former Glee actor Mark Salling’s trial in relation to possessing indecent and explicit images of children delayed.

A hearing took place on Monday, where a judge allowed an extension for the actor to find a new legal representative, reports People.

The original trial date of July 12th has been scrapped so that the 33-year-old is able to find a new attorney, confirmed the United States District Attorney’s Office.

A new trial date has not been set at this time, but a status conference – which is a hearing to set a trial date – is now scheduled for September 19th.

Salling is currently out on a $150,000 bond and was ordered by a judge to wear an ankle bracelet to track his movements.

Salling has also been ordered to avoid contact with the internet, drugs and children as part of the bond agreement.

The actor, who has pleaded not guilty, was indicted by a federal grand jury on two counts.

He faces charges of allegedly receiving and possessing indecent images of children on his laptop and a USB flash drive, both of which carry a potential 20 year prison sentence.

Last year Salling’s residence was searched by LAPD’s Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, where they allegedly found hundreds of indecent images of young children.

The police were reportedly tipped off by one of Mark’s ex-girlfriends and he was brought to Los Angeles’ Downtown jail.
