Chris Hansen Allegedly Sent Anthony Weiner-Style Photos to WPTV Reporter Kristyn Caddell

A week after news hit that “To Catch a Predator” star Chris Hansen had been caught on a hidden camera rendezvousing with WPTV reporter Kristyn Caddell, new allegations have emerged that Hansen sent the 30-year-old reporter Anthony Weiner-style photos of himself.

Sources close to the alleged lovers told the National Enquirer that Caddell showed friends a couple of suggestive photos that Hansen had emailed her shortly after they met.

According to the Enquirer: “One of the images shows Chris standing in a hotel room in front of a large mirror. He’s wearing only a white bathrobe that’s completely open–showing off his entire chest and midsection – with one hand concealing his genitals.” Read more

Undercover Cameras Bust Chris Hansen Having an Affair with WPTV Reporter Kristyn Caddell

Chris Hansen, best known for his “To Catch a Predator” series on “Dateline NBC,” has reportedly been caught by undercover cameras cheating on his wife with WPTV reporter Kristyn Caddell, who is 20 years his junior.

According to the National Enquirer, Hansen has been having an affair with Caddell for nearly four months.

Hansen and Caddell were introduced in the VIP area of a West Palm Beach club and “there was an immediate physical attraction between them,” a source told the Enquirer. Read more

Former WABC Weathercaster Heidi Jones Pleads Not Guilty While Her Lawyer Seeks Dismissal

Former WABC weathercaster Heidi Jones pleaded not guilty on Wednesday to charges that she lied to police about an attempted assault in Central Park last year, according to the Daily News.

Meanwhile, Jones’s lawyer is working to have the case thrown out.

“We are going to seek dismissal of the indictment on the grounds she’s been denied a speedy trial,” said lawyer Paul Callan, pointing out that prosecutors failed to bring the case to trial within the established 90-day window following Jones’s first court appearance on January 5th.

The case took an unexpected turn earlier this month when prosecutors moved towards an indictment in the case, pushing a trial further into the future.

Heidi Jones Case Takes Unexpected Turn

The strange case of former WABC weathercaster Heidi Jones, who has been charged with lying to police about an attempted sexual assault, took an unusual turn last week as prosecutors moved towards an indictment in the case.

According to the Daily News, the case was presented to a grand jury who returned an indictment, something rarely done for lower level crimes.

Jones’s attorney tells FishbowlNY that he is surprised that such aggressive measures have been taken in the case and says that he is seeking to have the indictment thrown out. “I most assuredly know what the decision to indict Heidi Jones means: It means that there appears to be a double standard for the prosecution of misdemeanors in New York County,” Jones’s attorney Paul Callan said. “The double standard is an unconstitutional disgrace. I will move to dismiss the indictment immediately.”

Jones, who admitted in December that she had repeatedly lied to police about narrowly escaping an assailant in Central Park, is set to be arraigned on the indictment on June 29th.

Police Accused of Inappropriately Questioning Former WABC Weathercaster Heidi Jones

Former WABC weathercaster Heidi Jones may escape charges of making false claims to police after it was revealed in court today that officers may not have appropriately handled their questioning of her.

After telling police that she was assaulted by a man in Central Park last fall, Jones eventually admitted that she had made the whole thing up. At the time, though, the police failed to read Jones her rights.

Speaking outside the courthouse, defense lawyer Paul Callan told reporters that police questioned Jones for hours without giving her a Miranda warning, according to the Daily News.

The prosecution is arguing that officers were not required to read Jones her rights since the questioning was part of an ongoing criminal investigation that she initiated. The judge has called for further hearings to discuss the matter.

Police Uncover Child Pornography at WCAG, Station Boss Arrested

Peter Mallory, whose LinkedIn profile lists his occupation as “WEATHER MAN,” was arrested at the WCAG offices after police discovered child pornography on several of the station’s computers.

According to WSB, an Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force raided the low-power independent station this week, seizing hard drives from WCAG computers and arresting Mallory. The computers contained pornographic images involving children.

Mallory, 63, was charged with possession of child pornography and tampering with evidence.

Mallory is apparently more than just than just the weather man. According to WCAG’s Wikipedia page, he also owns and manages the station, which serves households along the Georgia-Alabama border. TVSpy has been unable to reach anyone at the station today.

Randi Goldklank Escapes Criminal Conviction After Hitting ‘Rock Bottom’ with Restaurant Striptease

Randi Goldklank, who was recently dismissed as general sales manager of West Palm Beach’s WPEC after being arrested for a public striptease at a local restaurant, has been ordered to complete 30 days of inpatient alcohol rehab and an additional 90 days of AA meetings.

Goldklank appeared in court on Wednesday, according to the Boston Herald, as a judge decided to waive a criminal conviction in favor of alcohol treatment and probation for charges stemming from the bawdy restaurant show, which included disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.

The attorney representing Goldklank, who left her previous job as vice president and general manager of Boston’s WHDH-WLVI amid allegations of unruly public behavior, said that she saw this incident as an opportunity to turn her life around.

“Every person that has an addiction, whether it be alcohol or otherwise, hits a rock bottom at some point–and that was her bottom,” Goldklank’s attorney said. “It was unfortunate, but at the end of the day, it probably will turn out to be a blessing in disguise for her.”
