Without more info I don't know how to respond to this. I understand your concern and he could very well be dangerous. But unfortunately you can't try to control her because then she will rebel against you.

The only thing I can tell you is that if you have proof of it, to show it to her but don't try to stop her or forbid her to stop seeing him or she would do the opposite of that. Sometimes as much as we want to protect our kids, they will have to fall and get hurt to learn from it.

Like I said show her proof she could be in danger and hopefully she'll open her eyes. Good luck.

This! No idea on who he is or why you think this..

I would suggest poss doing a background check on him.

 Talk to her and let her know your feeling toward the guy and like the other mamas are telling there right.. Don't be her enemy.

Let her know that you love her unconditionally no matter what she decides.  Make sure she is aware of all the potential consequences of being with that person.  For example, if he is doing something illegal she could be made an accomplice or be implicated by virtue of her association with him.  Invite her to consider all the repercussions of having a criminal record.  If she gets pregnant (which she will even if she's on birth control because many times it fails), what are the consequences of having a child with this man.  As he is right now (assuming that men don't change), would he be a good/responsible father?  Would she really want to have that tie to him if he's not?  Please, please make sure she doesn't have the illusion that she can change him.  Men can change but it's an internal decision and very seldom because of the love of a woman.

Also, is your daughter's father involved in her life?  If he's a good influence, he could be essential in getting through this crisis.
