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