Teresa, I suggest Let it go!! The long term prognosis is probably about the same as keeping it.
Jeff is probably right. You can't legally keep most wildlife. Raccoons are considered vermin by most, so they probably don't care. I doubt you'd be charged, but my understanding is that nobody keeps these guys to maturity because they're just too much trouble. The older they are before they're released , the worse the chances.
If it eats and fends for itself, it might be a good time to take it for a deep walk in the woods, before fall comes.
