2 Racist New Jersey State Troopers Face Child Porn Charges For Explicit Texts

Devils: Andrea Knox and Jeffrey Reitz

A diabolical female New Jersey state trooper has been busted for receiving images of naked children during a sexually explicit text exchange with a racist fellow trooper — and not reporting the child porn, officials said.

Andrea Knox, 35, who is assigned to the agency’s Moorestown station, was arrested Tuesday on charges of second-degree official misconduct and third-degree possession of child porn, according to the state Attorney General’s Office.

She exchanged messages with Trooper Jeffrey Reitz, 48, who was indicted in December on two counts of possession of child porn involving a separate exchange of texts with another woman in 2014, according to a statement.

Reitz was arrested again Tuesday and charged with distribution of child pornography.

“During those exchanges, the woman proposed that Reitz sexually assault a young girl and sent him a sexually explicit photo of the girl,” the AG’s Office said. The girl has been described as that woman’s 5-year-old daughter.

Reitz responded to the image by texting “NICE!” — and made a reference to sexual arousal, according to the Courier Post.

The sick exchange from 2014 was unearthed during a probe of the white female, who is serving a seven-year prison sentence for allowing a child to engage in porn, the Philadelphia Inquirer reported.

Investigators looking into Reitz’s iCloud account discovered sexually explicit texts and photos from the exchange with Knox.

During a text exchange on Aug. 27, 2018, Knox asked Reitz for details about what sex acts he’d like to perform on a child, according to the statement.

“The following day, the pair had another sexually explicit text exchange, during which Reitz sent Knox photos of people at a nudist location,” the statement said.

Included were images of two girls “with their genitals visible,” it added.

“Knox failed to report that Reitz shared items of child pornography with her,” the statement said.

Knox was suspended without pay after her arrest, while Reitz has been suspended since his arrest in April 2019.

Knox’s attorney Katherine Hartman and Reitz’s attorney Stuart Alterman did not immediately respond to messages from The Post.

Alterman has previously said his client “is not guilty, and we will work through his exoneration and restoration to duty,” according to the Inquirer.
