JERSEY CITY — A 35-year-old officer with the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office has been accused of having child pornography.

He was placed on administrative leave and was suspended without pay, according to Hudson County Sheriff Frank X. Schillari.

“These allegations are serious and certainly do not reflect the values of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office," Schillari said.

Medina has been a sheriff’s officer since at least 2017, according to online pay records.
