NEW YORK (AP) — A New York City police officer has been charged with possession of child pornography after investigators say they found videos on his computer of underage girls engaged in lewd sex acts.
Officer Yong Wu was arraigned Monday in Queens on charges of promoting and possessing sexual performance by a child.
The NYPD says it has suspended Wu. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 cash bail.
An attorney for Wu did not immediately return a message.
Investigators say they arrested Wu while looking into people sharing child pornography files of on peer-to-peer networks. They say Wu was sharing at least 60 files of interest.
