Final Springerville Update
I told her everything I'd found out, then told her that I knew she was an adult, and that I was going to step out of it now (because I didn't want her to feel that I was intruding too much on her life, as I am her superior at work). I figured, she'd make some decision over the weekend, and hopefully, he'd be gone.

Got to work on Monday. The staff was all big-eyed-freaky looking. When I asked why, turns out that he was still here, had her car for the day, and she was talking to them about all the nice restaurants they'd gone to that weekend. But I figured, if she was giving him the benefit of the doubt, and he had to wait until Monday to get things cleared up (if that's possible), that she just needed a little more time to figure things out.

But then it was Wednesday. And still, no change. So I called the courthouse again, got the name of the lawyer and (it turns out) the private party that posted bond for him. Called the lawyers office, because I wanted to make sure that he knew that KJT was out of the state, and had said it was OK. Got a staff member, who wouldn't say anything until I gave her my name (which I'm a little leary about having out there, in his atty's hands, easily and likely shared with KJT), but I was too slow on the uptake to give a fake one. The secretary couldn't tell me much, but said that they had been in contact that week. So maybe he's getting this worked out, or ???

One of my staff, C, was the most freaked. She was wanting to call the cops and tell them where to find him. She is worried for the 14 year old daughter. I'm not saying anything to them about what is going on (although I'm pretty sure they can search the internet themselves), but I told her that M knows what's going on, is fully informed, and is an adult and has to make her decisions for herself and her family. C insists that M is "very stubborn", while J thinks that she's "using him for what she can get", and also thinks that "she's an adult, and has to make her own decisions."

I'm trying to tell myself that he made advances on the internet to a purported 15 year old who was acting interested back. Not that he was a child rapist or something. And it is M's life, but... I think I just have to step back from this. I don't know that getting any more involved with have any positive outcome for anyone, and just might have the negative one of making M uncomfortable and work and having her quit. And I really, really need her.

*conflicted*

I feel...: conflicted

That's an extremely complicated situation. I just hope that she has/can/will step back from this situation and realize the her CHILDREN are more important than some guy. Because even if a 15 year old acted interested in him, he should still realize that it is illegal. I hope everything work out okay, for the kids, for her, for you and at work.
