Oops, My own Duplicate got ranked

I registered a site for a family member.

Since I hadn't updated my apache config file for a month or two after registering, it just brought up my main site.

Well, I just checked a keyword search, and I show up at #2 for a deep page, and my sister in law's site shows up at #5 for the home page.

Her site is actually totally unrelated, it was just pointed to the wrong place before it went live.

Her site is live now (albeit in the very early stages), and is pointed to the right spot.

I don't want to report myself for spamming, but is there someone that can be contacted that wouldn't immediately flag my site and penalize it? I know the story sounds a little hoaky, but that's what happened. There were no inbound links to her site. Still aren't as far as I know.
