Synopsis: In July of 2014, Detectives with the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office opened an investigation into the possible sexual abuse of a female juvenile.

The juvenile reported that she had been sexually abused by a family member, Daniel Medina, for the past 7 years. The alleged sexual abuse took place, predominately in the city of Fort Bragg, with two incidents recently occurring in the jurisdiction of the Mendocino County Sheriff's Office.

On 08-19-2014, Sheriff's Detectives served a search warrant at Medina's residence off of West Street in Fort Bragg. Medina was transported to the Sheriff's Office Substation where he was interviewed and ultimately arrested.

Medina was transported to the Mendocino County Jail where he was booked for lewd and lascivious acts on a child under 14, the continuous sexual abuse of a child under 14, and penetration with a foreign object. Medina's bail was set at $200,000.
