This crazy girl is always threatening to kill herself. If she blames me can I go to jail

Asked over 1 year ago - Garden City, NY

I was friends with a girl that crazy. She is always threatening to kill herself. Idk if she actually would kill herself or not. If she blamed me can I get arrested and go to jail? I never threatened her or told her to kill herself. I only fighted back with her when she would start fights with me but again I never said anything threatening to her ever.

    Answered . I don't see how you can get in trouble if she kills herself, unless you coached her into it or assisted her in some way. I am also going to change your tag to criminal law.

    Answered . If the girl makes a report that you have assaulted her it is possible there could be a criminal case. Based on the facts presented it
    does not sound like you could be held responsible for her suicide. The continuance of this relationship might not be in your best interest. Good luck.

    Answered . I think your question depends on what occurs. If she does mysteriously and there is a violent history between you or she has told friends/family in the past that she is afraid you will hurt her then yes you will become a suspect. If it is clearly a suicide situation and they have no reason to suspect foul play then you should have nothing to worry about.
