The alleged crimes occurred between January 2018 and Oct. 1, 2020, according to the indictment.

The crimes were investigated by Sharonville police and occurred in the southeast corner of the city that is in Butler County.

According to records from County Area III Court, where the original rape charge was filed, Medina’s alleged crimes were caught on video and involved a 9-year-old girl.

The victim’s parents reported an in-home security camera showed Medina had inappropriate contact with their daughter, according to the court records. The victim also described to investigators sexual acts Medina performed on her.
