This answer was rated:

In early October I gave a fellow AA member permission to temporarily stay on my couch as he was sleeping in his car. In the interum he has moved his toods and a small amount of furniture into my loft. He has quit working, his money has evaporated and he stopped going to AA meetings. He has a history of crack cocaine use and I beleive that lhe has relapsed. I live in fear like a prisoner in my own home. He also attempted a sexual assault on me. I asked him to leave and find other accoddations a month ago and so far he has done nothing. What are my options???
Hello,
.
Thank you for using JA. Unfortunately, in allowing him to stay with you over a few days, you have inadvertantly become a landlord and him your tenant. So in order to legally get him out, you would have to deliver a written 3 day notice to him terminating his tenancy and notifying him to vacate. However, if he did not do so, then you would have to file a formal eviction action through the courts to get him out.
.
A couple things you may consider....If he has attempted to assault you, you could immediately file a criminal complaint and request a restraining order that would force him out as soon as it was issued, usually the same day you file the complaint.
.
If you didn't want to go that route, you can pay a sheriff to serve the 3 day notice on him so he thinks law enforcement is involved and that may scare him into moving out.
.
But filing a criminal complaint with a restraining order is by far the fastest way to get him out.
