A special prosecutor says he is reviewing findings of an investigation of two eastern Ohio police chiefs accused of illegally digging for tabloid material.
State agents have been looking into allegations that the chiefs illegally entered a home in May to obtain information about a woman carrying twins for actors Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick. The surrogate mother was not home at the time.
"Once I'm done with the review, chances are I would not file charges directly," Harrison County Prosecutor T. Shawn Hervey told The Associated Press. "The next available grand jury is July 29, so that's where I'll go if charges do arise."
The chiefs are from Martins Ferry and adjoining Bridgeport, which are both in Belmont County.
Hervey said initial allegations against them were taken to the county sheriff's office. Officials determined that a special prosecutor from outside the county should handle the investigation.
The chiefs have remained on duty. Neither was available for comment Wednesday. Both have declined to comment previously.
