I would say no as she is over the age of consent which is 16.

As long as no one knows about it. Be sure not to get her pregnant**

(edit)--If the man were underage or similar ages it is usually not prosecuted. If the man is a few years older then watch out!!!!! You have a baby !!!

Yes, because the age of consent in Michigan is 16 and so they are both above the age of consent

The parents cannot give you permission to break the law. Yes, you can be prosecuted and sent to jail.

Why would the parents be prosecuted? I have never heard of that before. The only one that could be would be the boyfriend because he had sex with a minor which means he commited statitory rape. Good luck and God Bless:)

Yes, because the act of intercourse was consummated while the girl was under the age of consent.

Yes you can! You must have parental approval, and judicial consent. It helps if your pregnant.
