Police chief says he didn't try to sell Parker-Broderick stuff



From the AP: An eastern Ohio police chief accused of breaking into the home of the surrogate mom for Sarah Jessica Parker's and Matthew Broderick's twins says he never discussed selling items from the home.

Suspended Martins Ferry Police Chief Barry Carpenter testified Friday at his trial on burglary and other charges, saying he went into the woman's home after he saw a basement door open while on routine patrol.

He says he took a photo of a surrogacy file that contained two ultrasound pictures and of a plaster cast of a pregnant stomach. He says he showed the photo of the cast to paparazzi and to several other people; The police chief of a neighboring town allegedly called the photogs.

How is that a defense of showing private property to paparazzi? Convicted or not, he should get a sentence of having people come to his house and rummage through his things.
