WALK traffic reporter arrested on child pornography charges

Police have arrested longtime WALK traffic reporter Jim Buckley and charged him with 10 counts of possession of child pornography.

Investigators say they found thousands of movies and images of hardcore child porn on Buckley?s computer, some including children as young as 5 years old. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials seized Buckley's computer in December after he allegedly distributed child pornography to undercover ICE and German investigators.

Prosecutors say Buckley confessed in court and was released on $350,000 bond. Buckley is now under house arrest and must wear an electronic surveillance bracelet.
