HACKENSACK - The sexual assault trial of former Fox 5 reporter Charles Leaf has gone to a jury.

Leaf is accused of molesting a 4-year-old girl in 2010. Prosecutors also say they found child pornography on his computer.  

During the trial,  the girl, now 8 years old, took the stand and said Leaf never touched her and that her nanny frightened her into saying he did. Leaf has maintained his innocence throughout the trial.

Leaf's father-in-law also testified that the child porn was his.

Jurors will reconvene Thursday morning to continue deliberating.
