Police found videos of young girls being shared by WTNH meteorologist Justin Goldstein, according to court documents.

Goldstein, 33, of Hamden, was expected to appear in court on child pornography charges Tuesday, but his case was continued until August 12.

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 Goldstein.

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

Investigators executed a search warrant at Goldstein's home on Aspen Glen Drive earlier this month and 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."
