A Connecticut man is accused of drugging his 12-year-old daughter with Benadryl so he could sexually assault her 12-year-old friend.
According to court documents obtained by WFSB, 42-year-old Robert Chesters was arrested after his daughter discovered text messages on her friend’s phone that indicated the two had started having sex during an August sleep-over at the family’s home. Police were called in after the daughter reported the text messages to school officials.
“[W]hen we made love last night your heart really showed through everything,” Chesters wrote in an Aug. 31 message.
Later texts revealed that the father was also giving his own daughter the allergy medication Benadryl so that he could take advantage of her friend while she slept.
“I am so lost without you :-( [blank] is gone next weekend And [blank] will have Benadryl so you can lay with me comfortably and love me,” he wrote the daughter’s friend on Sept. 8.
And from a text sent to the girl just before he was arrested, Chesters seemed to know that the relationship had reached an end.
“As a last resort tell them [blank] will lose her dad for ten years if they say anything. No matter what happens I LOVE YOU,” he said.
When police finally did show up on Sept. 11, the Lebanon man was found unconscious in his pickup truck with a suicide note. After being treated at a local hospital, he was taken to jail, where he is awaiting a Nov. 21. court date.

Trump’s ‘mind-numbing’ lies are ‘getting worse’ — and even White House aides are ‘baffled’: Morning Joe
MSNBC's Joe Scarborough warned the situation inside the White House is "getting worse."
The "Morning Joe" host highlighted President Donald Trump's "abnormal" views on foreign policy in Wednesday's episode, and then walked through the president's frequent flip-flops and the mental gymnastics his supporters must perform to stay loyal -- and Politico reporter Jake Sherman said the situation was exhausting to cover.
Trump dodges and gives an accidentally revealing answer when confronted on his anti-LGBT policies
When President Donald Trump was asked Tuesday about whether he supports his administration's anti-LGBT policies — including a new rule that would make it easier for employers to discriminate — he gave what seemed to be an unintentionally revealing answer.
REPORTER: Mr POTUS, your administration has been taking steps to make it easier to discriminate against LGBT people in the workforce. Are you okay with that?
‘Not only wrong but crazy’: MSNBC panelists recoil in horror from Trump’s ‘abnormal’ views on foreign policy
President Donald Trump made a number of puzzling and bizarre statements Tuesday about U.S. foreign policy, and panelists on MSNBC's "Morning Joe" were aghast.
The president canceled a tip to Denmark after its prime minister refused to entertain his offer to buy Greenland, offered a stunningly vapid assessment of the situation in Kashmir, and reiterated his interest in seeing Russia rejoin the G7.
"You can really understand in retrospect why Gen. (James) Mattis just quit (as defense secretary)," said MSNBC analyst Mike Barnacle. "He had to leave. You cannot be surrounded by such abnormalities coming out of the mouth of the president of the United States on a consistent, daily, multiple-times-a-day basis. We cannot make it normal, but there's a new normalcy when you see the president multiple times a day saying things that are absolutely, not only wrong, but crazy."
