According to a probable cause affidavit, Chastain met the girl at the skate park and told her he was 17-years-old.

Police say the girl told Chastain she was 14. According to police Chastain went to the girl's home after her father had gone to sleep. She told police they had sex twice that night.

Her father learned of the activity and took her to Indiana University Health Bedford Hospital for a medical examination.

He denied having been to her house.

Bedford Police Department investigators examined the girl's bedroom with an alternative light source in search of body fluids, according to the probable cause affidavit.

Two stains were located on the girl's mattress. Cuttings were made and the portion of the mattress was sent to the Indiana State Police lab. Also, officers submitted a DNA sample from Chastain.

The DNA came back a match.
