Can a 27-year-old go to jail for getting his 17-year-old girlfriend pregnant if the age of consent is 16?

Yes. This is one instance where judges do not hestitate to impose the maximum sentencing allowed if the adult is convicted of a crime(s) against an underage person.

Depends on how old the girlfriend is. The age of consent is 17 there.

The only way for him to marry his girlfriend is for her to be 18 and him to have parental consent or if she is under the age of 18 both would need parental consent. The male would have to be legally divorced from his parents otherwise.

The age of consent is 16 so everything is fine as long as she got pregnant (you had sex) when she was 16. If the 19yo is in any position of authority the age of consent is 18.
