TV meteorologist charged with possessing child porn

NEW HAVEN, CT -- A local TV meteorologist in Connecticut has been arrested on charges of possessing child pornography.

State police say 33-year-old Justin Goldstein of WTNH-TV in New Haven was arrested Wednesday.

He's also charged with promoting a minor in an obscene performance.

Police say an investigation began last month after video files of suspected child porn were downloaded from Goldstein's internet account. Federal, state and local authorities say they found child porn on computers and other devices seized at Goldstein's home in Hamden.

The 33-year-old Goldstein is free on $200,000 bond pending a July 26 court date.

WTNH has suspended Goldstein over the charges. His biography no longer appears on the station's website, and his social media accounts have been shut down.

It's unclear whether Goldstein has a lawyer.
