Hello there I am here to just protect myself and understand laws better. "Did anything wrong", I'm uncertainly what "wrong" means. I want to know my rights and protect myself if she goes overboard or I do something wrong.

Local and state police have broad powers which can be used to protect minors and facilitate custody.
Most states do not refer specifically to statutory rape; instead they use designations such as sexual assault and sexual abuse to identify prohibited activity.
Regardless of the designation, these crimes are based on the premise that until a person reaches a certain age, he is legally incapable of consenting to sexual intercourse.
There are alternatives to EMS and hospitals for custody and supervision of minors.
An uninjured child may be supervised by law enforcement personnel or a school or activity (soccer, etc.) supervisor until a parent is contacted.
Always contact medical control for assistance if there is any question!
