Ex-Fox 5 Reporter from Wyckoff Sentenced to 26 Years in Child Sex Abuse Case

Charles Leaf maintained his innocence during a sentencing hearing Friday, report said.

A former Fox 5 reporter from Wyckoff will spend 26 years in jail after being convicted on child molestation charges, NorthJersey.com reported.

According to the report, Charles Leaf continued to deny having an inappropriate relationship with a four-year-old family acquaintance during the sentencing Friday. 

Leaf was found guilty of eight charges related to sexual assault in February, the report said. Authorities said he touched the girl's private parts, and instructed her to touch his, the report said.

The girl told a babysitter about the incident in 2010, leading to the trial, the report said.

Leaf said he would appeal the conviction, the report said.

I DON'T have to wonder if John Santaella is a libtard, he just proved he is!

Why do you live in a black & white world? Isn't it possible, well not in your narrow mind, that I can think?

Sorry John, but when you refer to Fox News as FOX noose you expose yourself. This is not to hard to understand for someone with more than a few brain cells.

Long Time Resident I do have to admire your intelligence. You're way ahead of me. After all you speak multiple languages. I don't know what language 'libtard' is in. So you're better than the average bear. I guess you're not in the "English only" crowd. How do you expose yourself by resorting to name calling? You can't carry on an intelligent conversation by going to the name calling bit.

Well John, I was following your lead so you must be way smarter than I since I don't know what language "FOX noose" is, so you must not be one of the English only crowd also. Funny when someone else does what you did (name calling) it angers you...I think there is a word for that.....Hypocrite comes to mind.
