Can she go to jail for this?

My friend has an uncle that lives with her. She just told me that he has a warrant out for his arrest due to missing a court date. She was telling me this because she was hoping that he would get caught and go to jail, but she does not intend to tell anyone where is he.

But that got me thinking: can't she get in trouble for knowing that he has a warrant and not turning him in to the police? Would she get in trouble for "hiding" him?

Since ahe knows he has a warrant for his arrest, and he is living with her, she can get in trouble!

No.  Not unless he's a fugitive and she's harbouring him. 

But if he lives with her it is illegal for her to keep quiet IF he's commited a felony.

I think it depends on the state and what the warrant is for. If she doesn't want to tell she can do it anonymously that way it went cause issues.

She better be good at poker, because I think she can get into trouble for that.

That is correct.  It has to be a felony... Then she can absolutely get in trouble.

Lol! Not for missing a court date. That's a bench warrant for failure to appear. That's like a ticket. You drma queens are silly.
