UTICA – The Utica teen who is accused of shooting and killing another teen over the summer has been offered a plea deal.

Jorge Campos, 19, appeared in Oneida County Court on Wednesday for about three minutes, and security was heavy due to issues during a prior court appearance. Campos is charged with first-degree manslaughter, second-degree criminal possession of a weapon, criminal possession of a firearm, and third- and fourth-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, in connection to 17-year-old Stefan Medina’s shooting death on Aug. 17.

During the brief court appearance, the Oneida County District Attorney’s Office extended a plea offer to Campos. The details on that offer were not disclosed in court.

Campos is due back in court in two weeks to decide on the offer.

On the night of Aug. 17, Utica police found Stefan Medina lying in a driveway on Elizabeth Street with a gunshot wound. He died from his injuries at a local hospital. Campos was indicted by an Oneida County grand jury last week.
