More Troubles for Fox 5 Reporter Charles Leaf, Now Facing Child Porn Charges

Charles Leaf, the award-winning Fox 5/WNYW reporter, who was arrested for allegedly molesting a four-year-old now has been slapped with a child porn charge, The Record first reported.

At the time of his arrest last month, Leaf’s home computer was seized. Assistant Bergen County Prosecutor Kenneth Ralph said in a court hearing on Tuesday that forensic analysis showed it had kiddie porn images.

In light of the additional charge, a judge refused to reduce Leaf’s bail from $270,000. Leaf pleaded not guilty.

The judge wouldn’t lower bail because Leaf has three drivers’ licenses in three different states.

Leaf remains suspended infinitely by Fox 5.

In October, prosecutors say, Leaf, a father of two children, molested a young girl at his Wyckoff, N.J. home.
