Can a 20-year-old go to jail for getting a 15-year-old pregnant?
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 choose 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.
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…
