TV reporter faces child porn charge

HACKENSACK, N.J. - November 10, 2010

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.

The Record newspaper reports Bergen County prosecutors say an analysis of the computer showed the award-winning Fox 5 reporter had 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.
