Police Chief Gets Two Years’ Jail in Sarah Jessica Parker Surrogate Case
He stole items related to SJP’s surrogacy in order to sell them to photographers.
In May, he broke into Michelle Ross’ home, the surrogate who carried Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick‘s new twins. He stole items related to the surrogacy that he could sell to photographers for money. And now, former Ohio police chief Barry Carpenter is going to jail for 2 years and 8 months, Popeater.com is reporting.
He got off lucky, according to a special prosecutor, who said that Carpenter could have been looking at up to 6 years in jail for the crime. When sentenced, Belmont County common pleas judge John Solovan said prison time was a “must.”
During the trial, Carpenter claimed Michelle Ross’ front door was open, and that he simply went in to check things out. He just happened to snap photos of surrogacy files and ultrasounds and other items relating to Ross’ pregnancy before he left. But he swears he didn’t take anything.
Too bad that when Ross returned home from a stay in West Virginia, all said items were missing. Yes, Mr. Carpenter, 2+ years in jail is exactly what you need. (Popeater)
