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.

Bergen County prosecutors tell The Record newspaper that an analysis of the computer showed the award-winning Fox 5 reporter had child-pornography images on the computer.

Leaf pleaded not guilty to the child pornography charge at a court hearing Tuesday.

He pleaded not guilty last month to the charges of aggravated sexual assault on a minor and endangering the welfare of children.
