William Medina, 35, of Union City, is charged with one count of possession of child sex abuse material, a third-degree crime, Suarez said in a statement.

He was arrested at the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office in Jersey City and released pending his first court appearance, which is tentatively scheduled for Thursday, June 29th.

“These allegations are serious and certainly do not reflect the values of the Hudson County Sheriff’s Office,” Sheriff Frank Schillari said in a statement.

“Upon learning of the investigation, the officer was placed on administrative leave and is currently suspended without pay. My Office and its Internal Affairs Unit has, and will continue to, fully cooperate with the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office throughout the course of prosecution.”

Suarez credited the HCPO Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force, Internal Affairs Unit, Cyber Crimes Unit, and Crime Scene Unit with the arrest and investigation.
