I am entering into a roommate agreement with a 42-year-old

I am entering into a roommate agreement with a 42-year-old lady who moved to the city recently. The deal is good, it will save me about $500 a month. I am a clean, respectful person and want to make sure I am protected in case of any false allegation from my roommate in future. Eg. rape, sexual assault, theft, misdemeanor, felony, battery etc etc. Is there a way to protect myself? If yes, what should I do? If there is no way I can protect myself, I will continue to live alone. Please let me know.

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk

Our daughter 17 was raped by a 24 yr old who got her drunk at a party. He was the one who brought the alcohol to several minors. He raped her while she was passed out/asleep. We are prosecuting and have done everything including a rape kit but was done 60 hours after the rape when we found out. The exam showed abrasions to her labia and blood on her cervix. She woke up to this happening and pushed him off and left so we are doubting any semen. SO we have a he said she's said he is saying it was consensual. He has a record, He has been arrested 9 times, 5 of them for giving alcohol to minors. Our daughter is in counseling and is having good and bad days. We are supporting her and believe her 100%. My fear is he will go free. Do we need an attorney or do we wait for the prosecutors? And what if he gets off on lack of evidence and he sues us can/does that happen?JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Ohio and May 22JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No only policeJA: Anything else you think the lawyer should know?Customer: No that is the story in a nut shell.JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Criminal Lawyer about your situation and then connect you two.
