Charles Leaf, Fox Reporter, Accused of Sexual Assault

by at . Comments

Charles Leaf has been arrested for aggravated assault against a minor.

A reporter for WNYW Fox5, New York City’s Fox News affiliate, Leaf is being held on $250,000 bail in New Jersey's Bergen County after he was taken into custody on charges that include sexual assault and endangering the welfare of children.

The Cliffview Pilot reports that the prosecutor's office "formally accused [Leaf] of digitally penetrating a minor and masturbating in front of the youngster several times in recent weeks." The county website says the alleged victim is four years old.

This is the second time in recent weeks that Leaf, a former Marine, has been in the news for a controversial reason:

He garnered national attention in August for an ambush interview with Sharif el-Gamal, the developer behind the so-called “Ground Zero Mosque." Leaf has appeared as a guest on numerous Fox News programs, such as The O'Reilly Factor and On the Record with Greta Van Susteren.

Entertainment Reporter Julie Chang spent this week in Los Angeles covering the "American Idol" finale for FOX 5 and the FOX staff working behind-the-scenes picked up on something odd. Whenever she would want to say "thank you" to a staffer, instead of saying that she would say, "I want to rub my crotch against you." Repeatedly.
Uh, what?
She also didn't wear underwear.

@Michael: Just to be clear: the people building a place of worship, to take advantage of the First Amendment, are as bad as a man who masturbates in front of a four-year old?
What an admirable world view you possess.

What kind of parent's leave their young children alone with someone they probly didn't even know that well alone so he could do this? did they not find something wrong with that?.I'am so mad because the parent's could have prevented it.I hope he gets what he deserves in jail he's lower than even the scum on the floor.

Why bring up that he was a Marine? That does nothing but taint the rest of us who served honerably. The fact he was in the Marines has no bearing on this story. I never understand why reporters bring up military service if its not pertinant to the story. Maybe they should bring up what frat rapists and pedophiles belonged to as well. Or where they worked when they were teenagers. Or what kind of car they drove. It all has the same relevance as military service. Just another example of the media hating the military and those who serve in it.
