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?

My friend was arrested/accused of assault. He had only met

My friend was arrested/accused of sexual assault. He had only met this woman once, He is innocent however had been caught up in some things at the time that he shouldn't have. he was arrested and eventually released on ROR. He plead not guilty and asked for it to go to trial. She has now dropped charges. The local sheriffs department told him there is nothing he can do. She can't be arrest for false charges? This was in the local paper and even though shes in her 30's they wrote it up as sexual assault on 12yr old or older. He lost the job he had and can not get another one. People wont even look at him. How should he go about handling this?

I am a 44 year old professional male. I do not have any

i am a 44 year old professional male. I do not have any criminal background of any type. However, I was at an Atlantic city casino on Thursday. I was definitely intoxicated and playing roulette for 3-4 hours. I was sitting next to a woman that I was conversing with for approximately 2 hours of that time. I became more intoxicated and felt she was interested in me and thought she was flirting with me as well. Apparently I had touched her a few times inappropriately with hugs and caressing of shoulders and back. The pit boss warned me once and the next thing I know security was taking me into the office. They did a background check on me and supposively asked the woman if she wanted to press any charges. The woman said no to pressing charges and security walked me to my room and asked me to stay there for the evening, which I did. I don't believe I touched the woman in any errogenous areas but I do not know that for 100% sure due to most of that evening is not recallable. My questions are what type of charge could I have been charged with and can she still decide to press charges against me? Is this sexual assault or unlawful touching? Cane she decide to press charges at a later date or am I making too much of this? I'm ashamed and embarrassed by my conduct. I just want to know my possible consequences and probability I could still be facing legal ramifications from this episode.
