LEBANON, CT (WFSB) -

A Lebanon father of three is accused of drugging one of his children in order to have sex with her young friend, according to court documents.

Robert Chesters, 42, was arrested after having a relationship with a 12-year-old girl during a period of a few weeks, according to court documents.

The relationship between the girl and Chesters started after she had a sleep-over with his daughter at his home in August.

The arrest warrant reveals texts found on the girl's phone suggests Chesters was giving his own daughter Benadryl to get her to sleep, so he could be alone with her friend.

"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," according to a text from Chesters to the girl on Sept. 8.

The young girl's friends saw the sexually charged texts on her phone and told authorities in the middle school, who then called police.

According to the arrest warrant, a text on Aug. 31 from Chesters stated "when we made love last night your heart really showed through everything."

Chesters was arraigned at New London Superior Court on Wednesday. He pleaded not guilty to first-degree sexual assault charges and risk of injury to a minor.

Court papers reveal Chesters apparently knew the relationship wouldn't last and he even texted her at just 7 a.m. on the day police were closing in on him. 

"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."

When police went to arrest him on Sept. 11, Chesters was found sitting in his pickup, unresponsive and a suicide note on the floor. He was taken to the area hospital and then to prison until his next court appearance Nov. 21.
