Fox 5 Reporter Now Faces Child Porn Charge
A New York City TV reporter already accused in New Jersey of child sex assault faces an additional charge of possession of child pornography.
Authorities seized Charles Leaf's computer from his Wyckoff home when he was arrested last month on charges that he sexually abused a 4-year-old girl. Leaf was an award-winning reporter with Fox 5.
The Record newspaper reports Bergen County prosecutors say an analysis of the computer showed child-pornography images on the computer.
Leaf pleaded not guilty at a court hearing Tuesday. His lawyer sought to lower the $270,000 bail for the married father of two.
The judge refused because Leaf has three drivers licenses in three different states.
