Ohio lawman convicted in theft case
Barry Carpenter, suspended police chief of Martins Ferry, Ohio, was found guilty of charges of theft and receiving stolen property, as well as tampering with evidence. If that wasn't unusual enough, read on, courtesy of the Times Leader:
Carpenter, 40, had been charged with six felony counts in the alleged break-in of the home of Michelle Ross who was the surrogate of twin daughters for actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.
The indictment handed down against Carpenter alleged he had entered the home of the surrogate in May of this year and had taken various items pertaining to the pregnancy including photos that he later deleted from his cell phone camera. He also reportedly attempted to sell those photos and items to a tabloid photographer in an attempt to obtain personal financial gain.
Sentencing is scheduled for Dec. 30. The full story is on the Times Leader's web site.
