  • Is this legal?

    In WV is it legal for your girlfriends parents to tell you to be at their house at a certain time to pick their daughter up on a date and when I get there have their friend that is a cop be there to tell me not to come back and tell me that her dad is going to kill me if I do? I'm 18 and my girlfriend is 16. I understand they are allowed to keep us a part but are they allowed to lure me into a situation like that?

    That certainly sounds like a tricky situation and we are sorry to hear you went through that. We are not lawyers here so it’s difficult for us to say if you could press charges because of what happened. You may be able to talk with the local police and possibly file a report with the supervisor against the officer. If you were interested in pursuing pressing charges against the officer or the family you would probably have to speak with a lawyer. We did provide a WV Legal Aid number below that may be helpful.
