Just when you thought you’d heard it all. On the television news this week, many of us were treated to a bizarre photo of a 48 year old Vermont man dressed only in diapers. Here’s the story:
LEBANON, N.H. — A Vermont man pleaded not guilty Tuesday to harassment and other charges after he was accused of sending pictures of himself wearing a diaper to a New Hampshire teenager.
Lawrence Robarge was charged with exposing a minor to harm, indecent exposure, harassment and stalking, all misdemeanors. Enfield, N.H., police said that on Sept. 6, Robarge sent obscene text messages to a 17-year-old girl and pictures of himself wearing a diaper. Police said Robarge placed a total of 16 phone calls or text messages to the girl, who worked with police to arrest Robarge.
Police said that one picture sent to the girl shows a bottle of baby powder and two diapers. A caption with the photo reads, “Show this to your lady friends then have them call me if their [sic] interested. OKAY???”
At first, the girl sent a message back: “Gross old man… leave me alone.”
But police said Robarge responded: “I’m wearing a diaper right now,” and attached a picture of him wearing a diaper. Robarge remains free on $3,000 bail, and a trial date was set for Jan. 16.
