My ex boyfriend was on house arrest and removed the

My ex boyfriend was on house arrest and removed the monitoring device which he did not tell me about. Cops arrived at my parents house looking to question me. I was not there because I recently moved. My ex does not live with me and I made it very clear not to come to my home. We do have a child and I'm currently pregnant. I know the cops will come and question me in my new home. I do not know where he is staying but I have spoke to him on the phone. Is this considered harboring a fugitive? What am I obligated to tell them and not to tell them? I really don't know where he is staying he will not tell me but I do have his phone number. I don't want to get in trouble and I don't want to lose my children. And I live in Florida.JA: Since laws vary from place to place, what state is this in? And when did this happen?Customer: Florida and I just found out yesterday he has a warrant out for his arrest.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: No I don't have money for a lawyerJA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I didn't know that he was doing any of this until the cops came looking for me. And if I see him not in my home is that considered harboring? I don't want to be the one to turn him in but I can't afford to hurt my kids and this new baby. I have never been arrested and I don't have anyone to take care of my children if God forbid something happened.

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over

This skit is a dream I just had: My friends are staying over for the night and a group of two persons break into my home. They are armed with edge weapons (one of them has a licensed conceal and carry gun in his long coat pocket. A fight breaks out and nobody dies because the attackers abruptly stopped to dance. The attacker without the gun puts his scissors on the nightstand in the foyer area (where the incident is taking place). I seize the opportunity to pickup the scissors and stab him in the neck. What are the crimes and sentences of the people in the scenario. Use your best judgement in all circumstances.
