If you are pregnant and 15 and your baby's father is 17 but will turn 18 after the baby is born can he go to jail on Oklahoma?
It depends. If your child was conceived when the baby's father is 17 then no. But turning 18 can be a problem. Now he can be evicted of child molesting because you are a minor. BUT, he wasn't an adult when this baby was conceived. You should talk to a counselor about this.

Where can a 17-year-old pregnant girl go to marry the baby's father who is also 17 without parental consent?
Nowhere in the United States. However, as soon as they both turn 18, they will be able to get married. I believe you could get married in Georgia, but if it would be recognized in the state you live in I do not know! get a hold of the juvanile courthouse in your county and make an appointment te…ll them your situation. I am 16 and pregnant and my boyfriend who is the father is also 16 and we actually have an appointment to talk to a administrator so that we can get married without parental consent . Most states a judge will waiver the parental consent since your pregnant, just as long as you can prove that you can financially and emotionally handle a marriage and still care for your child as if you were over 18 because once your married your also emancipated and on your own its hard but if you go through the right steps and if you feel its the best thing for you two and your child then im sure theyll grant you what your asking :) good luck ;) You can get married in 3 states: Georgia, Florida, and Kentucky. But in all states you need a written statement from a legall psycitrist stating that you are pregnant. But in the state of Kentucky, you need to live there or have residents who live there in order to get married. There is not waiting period in Georgia or Florida, but in Kentucky there is a 3 day waiting period. The cost for a marriage licesene in Kentucky is 30-35 dollars, in Florida it is 88.50, and in Georgia it is 26-30 dollars. (MORE)

Answer . Only if you press charges. Or you say you didnt want to have sex and he forced you. Which would be very wrong. Also, some states have different laws. In some places it's considered rape just because of your age and his, no matter what you say. But usually charges have to be pressed for t…hat to happen. (MORE)
If you are almost 14 and got pregnant by a 17-year-old who turns 18 in March can he get in trouble or still be the father?
Answer . \nYou are below the age level for consenual sex in all 50 states. Whether or not the young man could face any criminal charges depends upon the laws of the state where you live. This is a very serious situation and is best discussed with an attorney who is knowledgeable in the state laws… pertaining to your specific issue. In regards to him still being the father, minors have the same basic legal rights concerning their child as do adults. The termination of parental rights can only be done voluntarily by the parent, or by the court for the purpose of ensuring the well-being of the child. (MORE)

If you're 15 and pregnant and the father of the baby is 19 can he go to jail if you have the baby even if your parents are fine with it in South Australia?
Answer . \nYou are very fortunate your parents are "just fine with it" and I doubt that one very much, but they feel there is no other choice, but to accept it all. You are a baby having a baby! What's done is done.\n. \nUnless your parents form a complaint against him and they accept him as t…he father of your baby (expecting him to get out and work and help support the child you are having together) then no, he won't go to jail. The only way he could go to jail is if your parents charged him with "Statutory Rape" or he didn't keep his promises and stood by you and helped support that baby. \n. \nGood luck\nMarcy. Answer . \nNo, a minor who is at least 15-years of age, and the partner is no more than 20, can apply the "five year rule" as a viable defense. The fact that the parents are agreeable strengthens the argument makes it impossible for any charges being brought, as long as the 15-years-old swears sexual intercourse was of their own "free will and choice".. Answer . \nAs long as you parents dont press charges. (MORE)
\n Answer \n. \nIt is EXTREMELY important to consult a lawyer in your case! You must be an emancipated minor in your state to move in with anyone. Further,there are also serious problems if the father is over the age of 18. He will be prosecuted as a sex offender, and have to register for LIFE …every where he goes! This is independent of whether or not there has been a complaint filed. DSHS in your state will want all info reguarding the circumstances of the father, your pregnancy and any other pertinent info, should you apply for any public assistance. If DSHS finds out, that he is over the age 18 they will turn his name over to police, and they will prosecute him no matter,if you,or parents,do not wish for that to happen! Please, please consult an attorney specializing in family law! Certain aspects of sex offender laws are ruining peoples lives, I only hope for the best for you, the father, and your baby!\n. \n. \n . \n No.\n. \nNot without the consent of her parents and/or permission from the court.

If you are 15-years-old and your unborn baby's father is 18-years-old can he go to jail in the state of Florida?
No, he can not. Your parents can press statitory rape, but unless you testify against him, he cannot ***** Absolutely he can. He's committed a felony by having sex with you. The DA does need the minor, or even the minor's parents permission or cooperation to file charges. And it will be a very eas…y case to winâ¦a simple DNA test on the child proves his guilt. He needs to go see an attorney, and then he needs to stop sex with children. (MORE)

If you are 15-years-old and your unborn baby's father is 18-years-old can he go to jail in the state of Missouri?
There could be criminal charge. The age of consent to sexual acts in Missouri is 17, so she is well under age. With only a three year difference in ages, he might get lessor charges.
In the state of Kentucky if you got pregnant when you are 15 years old but have the baby when you are 16 and the baby father is 24 years old could he go to jail?
Answer . Yes! He is still older than you, and as far as I know in Kentucky much like the rest of the country the age of consent is sixteen. He slept with a fifteen year old girl. He was older than eighteen at that point so it stops being corruption of a minor, and becomes Statutory rape. He is go…ing away for a very long time. (MORE)
Would it be bad to have a baby at 16 or 17 if you have a job go to a school with a daycare in it are in a serious relationship and can afford it because you and the baby's father have a job?
Personally I don't think it would be bad, but it would be very hard. Are you sure that you two will stick together?
yes because in the law that is considered rape. it is also a tiny bit wrong in a way but if you wait until your 16 which isn't long, you wont get him arrested because then it is legal... thankyou.
Can a 17-year-old go to jail for getting a 15-year-old girl pregnant if her parents press charges in the state of Pennsylvania?
No. You have to be 4 years older than her. . See: PA 18 Â§ 3121 . Rape to engage in deviate sexual intercourse with a complainant who is less than (1) 13 years of age or (2) 16 years of age and the actor is four or more years older.
Yes. It is called statuory rape. Even if the parents do not press charges, the hospital may call Children's Services or Protective Service when the baby is born to report it.. Knowing the state where you live would help in letting know the penalty you may be facing.. -----------------------------.… Actually the answer is no! A 17 year old is not considered to be an adult in every single state. You both are minors and it will be treated as such. (MORE)
I only know this as a Wyoming resident... but no he cannot... unless your raped
Yes, AND OH MY GOSH, WHAT IS WITH ALL OF THESE UNDER AGED CHICKS WITH LOVE LIFE TRAGEDIES???
It would take a formal complaint by the pregnant party for an arrest to be made. However, He has broken the law, Many places would arrest him and place him on the sex offenders list. Very illegal, silly and just retarted do it anyways age doesn't matter
no. the 17 yr old is not 18-which is of a legal age-whether the 17 yr old was a girl from a 15 yr old-in either case-no legal damage done-yet still-consequences
You are 15 almost 16 and pregnant your boyfriend is 18 almost 19 Could he go to jail cause your 15 in the state of Washington?
age of consent in Washington is 16. though he can still get in trouble if they can prove you two had sex while you were 15 years old.. which won't be hard to do since you're pregnant. so, yes.
Not in the UK, where the legal age of consent for both male and female is 16.
Yes. In fact, she could go to jail for a long time, because she's committed a felony (maybe several).
Yes, there is a chance he could. However, if no one presses charges against him ,the chances of that happening are lower
Here it is not the parents who can go to jail in Michigan, the boy has now not only had sex but the 17 year old boy has also made this 15 year old girl pregnant, so he will be tried under the juvenile court.
If your boyfriend is 17 but nearly 18 and his girlfriend is 14 nearly 15 and he gets her pregnant can he go to jail then?
Depending on where you live. Europe. America, Afrika. Under 18 would not make a big difference. as he is a minor. No problems.
If your boyfriend is 17 but nearly 18 and he got his girlfriend pregnant that was 14 turning 15 when he did turn 18 could he go to jail?
Yes, it is possible that he could be sentenced to juvenile detention, but because of his age it is also possible that he might be tried as an adult. The level of offense can depend entirely on which state this occurred in.. it's up to the parents of the 14 year old child and then again the 14 year …old child can get an aborsion. added: ATTN Questioner: Please research this matter carefully according to YOUR state's particular laws, and/or consult with an attorney. When it comes to statutory rape, and the welfare of minor children, the legal and social service agencies become involved and it is NO LONGER an option of the parents as to any choices in the matter.

How long does an 18 year old guy go to jail for being with a 15 year old if they were together when the guy was 17?
I don't know that that's illegal so i don't think there would be any jail time but i guess it depends on what state you live in and the laws there
If a teen age girl of 17 is pregnant and the father of the child is 18 can the fathers parents take the baby form the mother?
If you live in the US... The father's parents have no rights to custody at all. The father has the right to petition for custody, but he won't be given sole custody unless he can prove the mother unfit. He might, however, be given joint custody.
No, unless emancipated from her parents. Parents permission is not enough, as the law states you are a minor and under your parents care.. Emancipation requires a court order from a judge and, frankly, one will not emancipate you just because you're pregnant. There are many factors that go into tha…t decision and the fact that you are pregnant guarantees that you still need to be under the care of your parents. (MORE)
My daughter is 15 and pregnant the father is 17 Do we have to let him know it's his baby and what legal actions can be taken against him?
yes; you should let him know. Also he isn't 18 so what legal actions are you talking about ? If he had her consent to have sex then there is nothing to do. If you are talking about child support or something like that, then you have to let him know or in court it will be on you.
There's a test where they go in with a needle and get DNA from the baby in the womb but it's highly risky and not something they do. Just wait until he's born.
Getting a girl pregnant doesn't warrant jail time. That, and he's a minor. So, no.
It depends on the type of relationship you have with him. If it'sdrinking and stuff like that, probably...
I have strong reasons to believe you able to do this, although you might need to fill out some papers first. This depending on which state/country you actually live in.
My boyfriend barely turned 18 ive been with him for 2 years im 17 can he go to jail for going out with a minor?
no, but u he can get charged for rape if u guys have sex. so if u really love him n he really loves u u guys will wait.
Yep. Don't admit that he is the father until you are 18. ANOTHER VIEW : It depends on the laws of your state, and won't protect him if your parent or guardian reports him to the authorities.
Hes 17 turning 18 in may im 15 and turning 16 in march could you go out and im a freshman in highschool?
The age of legal consent in most states is 16. However, beware that if he is 18 there is not a age of legal consent and he could be charged with rape or contributing to the delinquency of a minor if it can be proven the two of you have had intercourse.
Why would your baby's dad who is 22 and you are 15 get in trouble for getting you pregnant when the baby would need its father?
Because technically it wasn't consensual since nowhere in the US is the age of consent 15, 16 is the lowest. Some states have a 3 year rule but he is too old for that. It was statutory rape. The judge might be lenient but you never know. He should've though of this as a responsible adult.
Yes, there's no "get out of jail free" card for being a father. It would be unusual for a 15-year-old to be sent to jail for longer than a few hours/days (temporary custody at a police station), but it's not impossible. A 15-year-old would be more likely to be sent to Juvenile Hall. If you're …asking "is it illegal for a 15 year old to have sex with a 12 year old", then it depends on where you live. In some places it is and in other places it isn't. (MORE)
No, when two teenagers are having sex, that is not considered to be child abuse.
Yes, having sex with girl under the age of 16 is STATUTORY RAPE, a criminal offence. Society (quite correctly) has deemed that a girl aged under 16 does not have the mental development to be able to give consent for sex. What the 17 year old has done is both rape and child abuse.
Will a 17 year old be jailed for getting a 15 year old pregnant if he is 18 and she is 16 when the baby is born?
Depends on what the law says in your state. What they go after is when you had sex, not when the child was born. It can not be statutory rape since you were not 18 when it happened but it can be something else since she was under the age of consent. Can't say though since you don't mention what stat…e you are in. Usually the states have a close in age clause so i think you'll be fine. (MORE)
Un fortunatly yes its stupid i know but apparently its illegal even if shes happy and the parents are . Im talking aboit uk law by the way
No, you are lucky. There is a close in age exception and since she is over 13 and you are less than 4 years older than her you can not be charged with statutory rape.
When you are 17 and in dfcs custody can you get put into a judges custody when you turn 18 or will you go to jail?
No matter what state you live in, the judge who heard your case has continuing jurisdiction over your case. When you turn 18 years old, the judge will decide, depending on your progress with DFCS, whether your custody arrangement will continue or will be changed. Some states have half-way houses for… juveniles over 18; some states may allow you to continue with DFSC until your time is finished. (MORE)
Can the mother of a 17 yo pregnant woman keep the daughter away from the baby's 18 year old father in the state of Kentucky?
Yes, you can get a restraining order if they do not listen. Age of consent is 16 there but that only means the sex was legal, not that they themselves decide who they meet. The parents decide who their minors meet. Once she turns 18, you can not stop them. When the baby is born he will have the righ…t to his child but whether they are allowed to see each other if she is still a minor, is up to you. But also remember she is pregnant and both you and I know how important it is to have your partner there both before, during and after birth. This is a emotional time for any woman and especially when still a teen. A teen mom run a higher risk for postpartum depression. (MORE)
no, unless she has no consent or if where u live 17 is an adult
