Every Child Deserves a Mother and a Father…

posted by on January 23 at 15:09 PM

A man accused of drugging his 9-year-old daughter with cold medicine so he could meet his mistress has pleaded guilty to endangerment for leaving the girl and her younger sister alone at night.

In court, Richard Bowen did not admit to giving one girl Nyquil so she would sleep, but prosecutors said he admitted it during phone calls from jail.

Police said Bowen was responsible for his 8- and 9-year-old daughters while his wife worked overnight. On several occasions between February and May, he allegedly gave the cold medicine to the 9-year-old, then put both girls to bed before leaving to visit his mistress.

If the wife was at work and the kids were drugged… why not invite the piece-on-the-side over? That’s what any responsible gay parent would do.

First thing: make sure, when you move into your house, that you get the bedroom walls redone with sound-dampening insulation. Then your kids can sleep through the night while you do crazy, crazy things with your wife, or lady friend, or both.

He's following one of your rules for having affairs, Dan: Don't have sex with another man/woman in your marital bed!
