293broderickparkerlc012309Ohio lawman Barry Carpenter was recently found guilty of breaking into the home of Sarah Jessica Parker’s surrogate mother of her twin girls.

Apparently looking for some pregnancy documents, Carpenter was suspended from his post as Chief of the Martin Ferry Police Department and officially charged with receiving stolen property, theft in office and tampering with evidence. “Barry admits that he acted very stupidly, but denies that he acted criminally,” said his attorney Dennis McNamara in his closing argument. Carpenter admitted to going into the house, but says it was only because the door was open. He also admitted to taking pictures of some pregnancy documents including the ultrasound photos and a plaster cast of the surrogate’s pregnant stomach. He also admits showing them to the paparazzi.

Currently Carpenter remains free but is being closely monitored by a GPS system. He is scheduled for sentencing on Dec 30Th. “The bottom line is that there is a victim in this case whose privacy was so gravely intruded upon,” said Ohio Assistant Attorney General Emily Laube after the verdict was read, “If you can’t trust the police, who can you trust?”

surveillance3A Spokane, Idaho Washington woman has not only been accused of kicking her child, but she’s been caught on camera. Often times, authorities are unable to properly help or prosecute bad parents because of lack of proof. In Keyana Keys case, this 28-year-old mother has been caught on a Spokane Transit Authority surveillance tape kicking and throwing her child around. A judge formally charged Keys on Monday.

“I think that she just had a momentary…just flipped and lost it because there was just too much for her.  And she’s a very, very good mother.  She makes sure they are fed well, they are cleaned, clothing.  Always buy them everything.  She’ll spend all her money on her kids,” said her friend Paula Nieves.

Regardless of what witnesses, or friends, or family say, this poor parental behavior was caught on surveillance tape and a unbiased judge was able to review the evidence. Hopefully having cameras like this capture bad acts on tape will make people more accountable for their actions, especially when it comes to their kids.
