An Emmy-winning former medical correspondent for NBC was arrested for allegedly asking a 9-year-old girl to send him sexually explicit photos, according to new reports.
Dr. Bruce Hensel, 71, was charged Wednesday with asking the daughter of a friend through an online messaging app for the photos in August, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Hensel, who worked as the on-air chief medical correspondent for NBC New York and Los Angeles, faces one felony count of contact with a minor for sexual purposes.
The Los Angeles Police Department launched an investigation into Hensel after they learned he and the girl shared inappropriate messages and photos. Hensels home in the Pacific Palisades was searched on Oct. 16 as per a search warrant.
He was booked into the Los Angeles Police Departments Metropolitan Detention Center and his bail was set at $5,000. His arraignment will be at a later date.
If convicted, he faces up to 18 months in prison.

See when your case makes the news, all the other guys in joint are gonna know why you’re there.
And that’s bad.
Well, actually that’s good.
Where’s that Dateline “To Catch A Predator” guy? This would have been a perfect episode.
Local affiliate. I think LA media environment is more to the point. That said, NBC is covering for Epstein who did not kill himself.
Skeevy ex-Democrat media reporter caught trolling for little girls.
And these are the same people who lecture us on how vile President Trump is as a human being.
Words fail me.
71! I didn’t think even pervs this old still have sexual urges.
If I a Democrat, my sexual desires as are legitimate as yours. Who is to say I am wrong?
Shoot the bast*rd.
Big Media took 29 days to report it.
You see his fatal mistake, right? This would have all been fine and swept under the rug , until he went and chose a girl for his victim
I think the age is way off. He is NOT 71.
Au contraire. You said it quite well.
you think older or younger?
He looks like most 71 year olds in LA. If you get up close you’ll see through the facade of botox, hair plugs, dye and veneers. It’s pretty gross.
I googled him. He does look younger, but he also acted in a Death Wish movie 42 years ago, so it could be plastic surgery.
This is on wikipedia (until someone edits it):
“Dr. Bruce Hensel is an 11 time Emmy award-winning former Chief Medical Correspondent for KNBC. He is also currently a producer, writer, director, journalist, physician and a pedo who asks 9yr olds for sexually explicit pics. He had previously acted in Death Wish 4: The Crackdown and the 1980s TV soap opera Capitol.”
Naw. Let old “Short Eyes” almost die from fear in the joint until it finally happens.
Get busy updating, Wikipedia.
