In the United States, yes. In the United Kingdom, yes. In most (but not all) other countries, yes. However, this does not mean the man WILL go to jail. If the girl's parents c…hoose to press charges, (or if the state laws require it) though, it is very tough to avoid a conviction and a long prison sentence (up to life in jail). The ages of consent range from 16 to 18, meaning a twenty-year old is almost universally forbidden from having sex with a minor. Check with the laws of your state or province to be sure. If this escalates to a worse situation, contact an attorney and discuss your legal options. In the meantime, work with the girl's parents to support her and your child. Don't let one big mistake turn into a much bigger one; stay involved in your child's life. It depends on the state. In most states the age of sexual consent is 16 (in some it's higher). If an adult has sex (even if it wasn't 'forced') with someone under the age of sexual consent then they have commited a crime. They can be charged, tried, and convicted. Once that baby is born, it will be very easy (with a DNA test) to prove beyond any doubt that this man is guilty. Even if the girlfriend or her family didn't want to press charges, the state can still chose to press charges. With a 5-year age difference, and the fact that the elder of the pair is over 18, you have to look at statutory rape. Statutory rape does not take consent into consideration. Different states have different definitions of the age limits and age differences, and it's a serious offense. If the prosecutor is angry, the elder of the pair can get up to life in prison! And if and when released from prison, he (or she) goes on the sexual-offfender list, with all the restrictions that carries. for England and Wales The age of consent in England and Wales is 16. The offence committed is 'Unlawful Sexual Intercourse' and does carry a prison sentence HOWEVER, because of the girl's proximity to the age of consent and the young man's youth, as long as there was no evidence of force, it is likely that he may receive a Police caution (and as a result, lose the chance to work with children in the future).
Are you allowed to marry a guy that got you pregnant at 15 years old and then move out of your parents' house without their permission?
Answer . no you're not. Answer . \nno, if you wanna marry that guy at an age before 18, your parents would have to sign a paper agreeing to let you marry him, since you…r a minor but when you turn 18, its your choice to marry him or not...
If a 15 year old girl in Ohio gets pregnant by a 20 year old boy and her parents don't press charges could he still go to jail?
Answer . The authorities can press charges because they are the ones that enforce the laws. Parently consent to this doesnt override the law.
The parents are in trouble as well they cant change the law regarding age of consent.
yes,that is like raping a child
If 18 year old boyfriend got 15 year old girlfriend pregnant can the 18 year old go to jail even though the parents are ok about it?
Yes and so can the girls' parents, too, for child endangerment.
Nothing can legally happen to you unless she was raped by you. Otherwise, you are going to have to grow up quickly!!
What should a 15 year old male do when he thinks he acsidently got his girlfriend pregnant but not sure and doesn't want to tell his parents and has about 40hours to go to the clinic to get the pill?
You have to talk to some one as soon as possible - is there someone you can talk to that can then later also go with you and talk to your parents ? This is a heavy burden to c…arry and you need to spread the load. Take Care.
He is a minor so nothing.
firstly, the mans mother would be completely disgusted that he rooted a primary school chick and you should have gone for a kindergarten kid the fact that you are going for ol…der people than your father had is wrong the mans mother should lock him up and use him as a fun little play item
Yes, in Australia and New Zealand you will be incarcerated for no less then 10 years and be awarded a fine of no less than $10,000 if statutory rape takes place where there is… an age difference of more than 2.5 years. Although this depends on your birth months, so don't lose hope yet. You can have your girlfriend petition for emancipation in which case you would be able to have an abortion, however you still wouldn't be out of the woods yet. As abortions for minors are a criminal offense your best bet would be to have the abortion and accept the fine rather than risk having the child and therefore admitting to raping your girlfriend and going to jail for 10 years. Your third and most logical option, in my opinion is a home abortion. Just remember, as with all surgical procedures, air goes in and out, blood goes round and round, any variation in this is bad.
If a 21 year old guy gets a 15 year old girl pregnant can he go to jail if he puts his name on the birth certificate in Oklahoma?

What would happen if a 15 year old girl got pregnant by a 20 year old in California no one is pressing charges?
Who is 'no one'? The only 'one' who can press charges is the state, because it's a crime against the state. If it gets reported (and it likely will be, because some people suc…h as doctors and teachers are required by law to report it), then he will be charged--it's a very easy case to prove. And the state does not need her parents approval or cooperation to charge him. In fact, if her parents refuse to cooperate, they could possibly be facing charges too.. He needs to go see an attorney, and then he needs to stay away from little girls.
What will happen to the 20 year old who got you pregnant that is in jail already for a different thing?
If you are talking about stautory rape that charge and sentence will be added to his first punishment. He will also be labeled a sex offender.
15 year old is pregnant and the guy that got her pregnant is 23 but she is emancipated could he still go to jail?
First of all, few if any places would emancipate a 15 year old, they are considered too young to take care of themselves. Yes, she is well below the age of consent in all stat…es. And there is a considerable age difference.
Well this question is hard to answer as its a purely bias or opinionated question. in my personal opinion its fine as long as your sure you want to.
Can a 20 year old boyfriend be put in jail on kidnapping charges for picking up a 16 year old girlfriend from school without parental consent?
Probably not considering the 16 year old made the choice to go. It would be different if he did not drive her home or she was a little girl.
