A police chief who was accused of breaking into the home of Sarah Jessica Parker’s surrogate mother and attempting to sell her possessions to the paparazzi was found guilty yesterday on three of six charges.
Barry Carpenter, who along with another police chief, Chad Dojack, was accused of stealing items from Michelle Ross’ home, including ultrasound photos and legal documents related to her pregnancy with Parker and Matthew Broderick’s twin girls.
After 12 hours of deliberation, a jury convicted Carpenter of receiving stolen property, theft in office and tampering with evidence, but was found not guilty on two counts of burglary and one count of unauthorized use of property or services.
Carpenter will return to court on Dec. 10 for sentencing. Dojack, his alleged accomplice, will stand trial this January. (People)
