Ohio Police Chief Avoids Jail Time On No-contest Plea In Parker-Broderick Surrogate Snooping

A suspended Ohio police chief has been spared jail time for his part in snooping on the woman who carried twins for Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick.

Under terms of his Wednesday sentence, Chad Dojack of Bridgeport in eastern Ohio must complete 50 days of house arrest, three year’s probation and 100 hours of community service. He had pleaded no-contest plea to dereliction of duty, a misdemeanor.

Dojack and Barry Carpenter, now ex-chief of nearby Martins Ferry, were accused of scheming to take things from the surrogate mother’s Martins Ferry home last year to sell to celebrity photographers.

Carpenter was convicted of felony charges and sentenced to two years, eight months in prison.

Bridgeport is considering whether Dojack will remain chief.
