Best Answer

He SHOULD be prosecuted for having sex with a minor child. Sexual perversions of that type are serious crimes. * The age of consent for the state has been revised to 16. Therefore criminal charges would not apply in such a case as Wisconsin does not have a age descrepancy law that pertains to sexual relationships and the AOC. Wisconsin is the only US state which will allow a minor to be legally emancipated due to a pregnancy.

Generally an adult who harbors a "runaway" or absentee minor without notifying the minor's parents, guardian and/or authorities is committing a criminal offense, and can face both criminal and civil penalties in accordance with the laws of the state. However, Wisconsin law defines what constitutes emancipation of a minor in several ways, therefore, it is not likely criminal charges would be valid. The parents or guardian of said minor could have grounds for civil litigation if they chose to take such action.
