The judge has spoken -- one of the ex-police chiefs accused of rummaging through the home of Sarah Jessica Parker's surrogate in search of souvenirs was just sentenced to two years and eight months in the slammer.

Barry Carpenter -- the former chief of police in Martins Ferry, Ohio where the surrogate lives -- was convicted of receiving stolen property, theft in office, and tampering with evidence.

He was acquitted of burglary.

Carpenter resigned from his post as police chief two weeks ago.
