Depending on where you live, in Canada the age of consent is 14 yrs, so as long as it was consentual no you would not go to jail. In other parts of the world however there have been sever consciences for per marital sex and statuitory rape (not meaning forced sex), that would just be rape. So in the future let us know which country you need to know for.

Getting a girl pregnant doesn't warrant jail time. That, and he's a minor. So, no.

Yes he can go to jail, if the girl was 16 the guy can only be 21 years old.

It depends on where you live. If you live in the US, absolutely he can go to jail.

no he can not go to jail, he will probably have to pay child support tho

You will be fined. There is a jail term with fine option in some state.

No, no one goes to jail for becoming pregnant no matter how old they are. Pregnancy is not illegal. If a adult have sex with a minor the adult can go to prison for statutory rape.

Depends. If he/she is over the age of 18 and he/she is younger than 18 yes you can go to jail in certain states. If you both are over the age of 18 and or both younger than 18 No, you will not go to jail. If you get a girl pregnant and she is under 18 and so are you, you can't go to jail. But if you got a minority pregnant, in certain states, you may face charges.

no, unless it was rape. if the person who got the girl pregnant was over 18 and the family wanted to press charges then you could.

Depends on the laws where you live and the age of the boy.

User Avatar

it really depend on the age. If the pregnant teen is under 18 then the father can be put in jail for stat rape if the parents of the girl choose to.

User Avatar

Yes he could be put in jail as he is a adult 21 years, and the girl is 17 a minor, so it is a major crime.

User Avatar

The ability to father a child has no relationship to being sent to jail. If you are referring to going to jail because they fathered a child to a minor, it will depend on the laws where they are. If the girl is under the age of consent, it is possible.

User Avatar

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.

There is a good chance she could go to jail.. it depends on the law in your State.
