          Teen Who Ran Away With A Much Older Man Says She Made A Mistake: ‘It’s Illegal For A Reason’


          February 2, 2017

          Reflecting on her decision to run away with her friend’s 37-year-old father in December, 2016, 15-year-old Calah Waskow says she should have seen the signs “… and should have just stayed home.”  

          The pair were gone from their hometown in Georgia nearly a week before authorities caught up to them in Tennessee. Jason Johnson faces multiple counts of child molestation, among other charges.

          Have a headline making story in a small town?

          In an exclusive interview with Dr. Phil airing Thursday, Calah says she made a mistake, “Me being 15, I made the mistake of putting my life – and, trying to be grown, into a man who is a 37-year-old adult – old enough to be my father – putting everything in his hands whenever I’m supposed to be at home with my mother.”

          “It’s illegal for a reason.” Calah says she wants her story to serve as a warning to others.  Tune in to Dr. Phil on Thursday to watch the rest of her story.
