Suspended WTNH Meteorologist Accused of Having Videos of Young Girls Due in Court Tuesday

Police said they found files of suspected child porn on Justin Goldstein's computer equipment.

Justin Goldstein, a suspended WTNH meteorologist, is due in court Tuesday, eight months after police arrested him and said they found him sharing videos of young girls.

Police said the investigation began in June after officers used a peer-to-peer (P2P) network to download three videos of suspected child pornography from an account assigned to 33-year-old Goldstein, of Hamden.

The videos depicted young girls, one possibly as young as 4 years old, performing sex acts on adult men, according to the arrest affidavit.

When investigators executed a search warrant at Goldstein's home on Aspen Glen Drive, they seized several items, including a computer, a laptop, a cell phone and a PS3 game console. Those items have been sent to a computer forensic lab for examination, according to the court documents.

Goldstein was arrested July 14 and was released on a $200,000 surety bond. He has been suspended from work at WTNH-TV in New Haven.

"We are deeply concerned by the allegations," Mark Higgins, general manager of WTNH-TV said in a statement on the day of Goldstein's arrest. "Until the matter is resolved, Justin Goldstein is suspended from his duties at WTNH."
