A search warrant found 50,000 images of child porn on his computer and a thumb drive.

Sentencing in the case was scheduled to take place in March. Mark was facing 4 to 7 years in prison after agreeing to a plea deal.

Back in August, a month and a half before striking the deal, Mark had cut his wrists in what appeared to be a suicide attempt.

His lawyer though denied it at the time.
