Former Nebraska sports reporter facing child porn charges

LINCOLN, Neb. -- A well-known former sports reporter is now facing charges for child pornography in Lincoln. 

Forty-nine-year-old Brian Rosenthal is already in Nemaha County Jail after being arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting a child. 

Nemaha County had contacted the Lancaster Sheriff's Office for help on the case. 

While looking into Rosenthal, the Lancaster County Sheriff's Office said they found child pornography on Rosenthal's phone and had been sharing them with other people. 

Rosenthal worked for the Lincoln Journal Star until 2016 and huskers.com until 2020.

The Sheriff's office is concerned that there are other possible victims.
