ST. CLAIRSVILLE, Ohio (AP) — A former Ohio police chief has been sentenced to prison in connection with a break-in at the home of the surrogate who bore twins for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.
Barry Carpenter was sentenced to two years and eight months in prison Wednesday. He was convicted last month on charges of receiving stolen property, theft in office and evidence tampering but acquitted of other counts, including burglary.
His attorney vowed to appeal.
Carpenter resigned two weeks ago as chief in Martins Ferry, where the celebrity couple's surrogate lived. Carpenter and Police Chief Chad Dojack of neighboring Bridgeport were accused of conspiring to steal items from the woman's home to sell to paparazzi.
Dojack's trial is scheduled for next month.
