Joseph, I have read similar answers to these questions, but would really like some peace of mind here. I just texted an escort I had previously met up with, literally just to see how she was doing. Before we met, there was no discussion of sex, however money and time-frames were discussed. It was around Valentine's day and all I wanted was a girl to hang out with for a half hour, that was it. I even had her over the next day, I have been so lonely lately, but again, just for companionship, and nothing else was discussed other than coming over for a half hour, and how much it would be for her time. When I texted her today to see how she was doing, her only response was "Police". I sent a few more texts like "?" and "ummm what?" to which she simply replied "Police" again. I replied to this a few more things such as "I am confused", called her number without an answer, and then texted "slight elaboration would be great". I am *quite* sure she was not a police officer herself. What could this mean? If she was arrested, could they go through her phone and arrest me? I am particularly worried since I currently live at a friends house, yet my official address is at my parents house and the LAST thing I need is some sort of letter showing up to my parents house regarding this. I also am almost done with graduate school and and suddenly terrified of losing everything I've worked for. I apologize for this being so long, but I am quite worried and am hoping you can offer me some reassurance. Especially if a her-word-against-mine thing develops? I'm just worried all around right now. It was something super out of character for me that I never intend to do again, so I really hope nothing ever comes of this. Thank you.
