New Jersey state trooper charged with possession of child pornography

TRENTON, New Jersey (WPVI) -- A New Jersey state trooper has been accused of plotting to sexually assault an underage girl.

The Office of the Attorney General says 48-year-old Jeffrey Reitz, of Williamstown exchanged emails discussing the plot with another woman.

Investigators say those emails also included explicit photos of the young victim.

On Thursday, a grand jury charged Reitz with two counts of third-degree possession of child pornography.

Officers made their initial arrest back in April.

Reitz has been suspended without pay since then.
