Hey can anyone please help me? My friend ran away from home recently (her dad got really mad at her and chased her with a bat and said he wanted to kill her or something). So she ran away and asked if she could stay with me. She is 16 and I am 22, if we are not having a sexual relationship is this legal? She does not have anywhere else to go and if I kick her out she will litterally be living on the streets! She does not have any family she can stay with. So basically what I really need to know is what the washington state laws say about this and can I got to jail for letting her stay with me? I am sure her parents filed a missing persons report and she has my phone number on her phone records so I am guessing the police would show up at my house eventually looking for her, could they get a search warrant? If they did find her staying here howmuch trouble would I get into? I dont know what to do she does not have anywhere else to go and her dad seriously said he wanted to kill her and I dont want to be introuble with the law or go to jail.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED THANKS!
