LEECHBURG, Pa.- A Pennsylvania police chief has been charged with soliciting sex online from an undercover agent posing as a 14-year-old girl. The chief's wife says her family has been "shattered."
  
Leechburg Police Chief Michael W. Diebold's wife, Danielle Reinke Diebold, released a statement Sunday saying that she "has never hurt so bad" in her life.
  
The 40-year-old police chief was arrested Friday at a spot where he allegedly hoped to meet with the girl he thought he'd been communicating with.
  
Court records don't list an attorney for Diebold. A phone number listed as Diebold's home went straight to voicemail and could not accept more messages.
  
A message left with the Leechburg police department was not returned. Diebold is still listed as the police chief on the Leechburg website.
