You 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. Unless your parents form a complaint against him and they accept him as the 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. Good luck Marcy Answer No, 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 As long as you parents dont press charges.

Can a 16-year-old and a 19-year-old have a baby without the 19-year-old going to jail?

It varies from state to state. In most states, it is felony for underage sex as 16 is considered to be a minor. You are considered immature and not able to consent to sex with an adult over the age of 18. Be wise, stay in school and reach your goal. Boyfriends/girlfriends come and go, but your pride (MORE)

What should you do if you're 19 and pregnant and both you and the father want the baby but you have no jobs yet and your family thinks you are too young and can't do it?

At age 19, you are nearly an adult and can certainly make your own choices. The odds of you and the father continuing with a lifelong committed relationship aren't very good at that age, but of course those are the 'odds' - each relationship is unique. Keeping the baby is your decision - not your fa (MORE)

If you are 16 and pregnant can your baby's father who is 19 go to jail?

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.

Your 15 and 6 months pregnant can your parents refuse to help you raise the baby when its born?

Answer . I would think not as your parents are responsible for you until you are 18.

If they are saying they aren't going to help yo (MORE)

Can a pregnant 15-year-old be emancipated and marry the 18-year-old father of the baby in Louisiana Her parents say its all right?

I'm not sure why you're asking about emancipation. If you mean a court decree for emancipation, it's not going to happen (a 15-year-old can't even petition). But once a person legally marries in LA they are automatically emancipated (no court decree required).. However in order to marry at 15 you (MORE)

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 (MORE)

The answer to this question is NO. I personally was in this situation. The answer is NO. Point blank. You can choose not to let him see the baby, but only for so long. It will not look good in court.

Should a pregnant teen be able to keep the baby even if the parent say no?

The parent is the parent and guardian of the teen but have no legal right to decide over the teen's baby. Teens have the same feelings towards their children adults do and have the same legal rights. So yes, of course. Forcing parents and children apart is wrong and can cause irreparable trauma.

It's not against the law for you being pregnant - if you are under the age of consent it is illegal for any one to have sex with you. You legally are not old enough to say "yes, let's do this."

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 (MORE)
