In California if a 19-year-old male gets a 17-year-old female pregnant can her parents put him in jail?
\n. \n Answer \n. \nNot if they were dating and proven to be sexualy active before the male or female turned 18.\n. \n . \n . \nShe is below the age of sexual consent for CA. It doesnt matter if they were dating or sexually active before he turned 18 or not. Her parents cant put him… in jail, but they can report the crime, and then the DA will decide what action will be taken.\n. \n Answer \n. \nI know as parents you possibly would never consider your daughter loves this young man, but, she does! It doesn't matter if you think she's not old enough or not. To go after the young man (provided they were dating) will not only break your daughter's heart but you also run the risk of your daughter never forgiving you for this. They are having a baby together and instead of putting this young man in jail make sure he helps support the child. When in doubt put yourself in her shoes. She's a young woman going to have a baby and there is going to be a bond with that baby whether she keeps the baby or gives it up for adoption. As a mother try to remember how it felt when you first became pregnant with your daughter. Although you were married and your daughter isn't this doesn't change things as far as loving the father of the baby.\n. \nYou have every right to be angry, but try to calm down and rethink this. If the young man is decent enough then sit down with him and his parents along with your daughter and yourselves and come to some decisions about this pregnancy. Your daughter and this young man have feelings too. ( Full Answer )
Assumption - There is more than just holding hands going on. The law varies from state to state. Each state has legislated an "Age of Consent" that varies from 16 to 18. So a 16 year old and a 19 year old might not be a problem at all. In other states consummation of the relationship could be consid…ered statutory rape. In still others there is an age difference consideration, meaning if they couple are within a specified number of years of age, there will be lessor or even no charges. how about if your in florida?

What if a 16 year old male gets a 19 year old female pregnant can the female be arrested in new york state?
no it is not illegal. By law, they're both still in the age range, and are still in their teens. If the woman was 21, then the male could be arrested.. It depends on the legal age of consent, in some states it's still 15, some 16, some 18. However, most states turn a blind eye to the written law as… the above answer mentioned if both are teens. For example an 18-year old senior high school student dating a 16 year old. The above is wrong on who would get arrested though. Male wouldn't be arrested, if the woman was 21 and the male 16, the woman, as the offending adult, would be arrested. See the several teachers in FL that had sex with their students ( I was never so lucky). ( Full Answer )

If a 19-year-old male and a 17-year-old female living in Michigan have a relationship approved by her parents can he go to jail if she gets pregnant?
No. The age of consent for sexual activity in Michigan is 16. Parents cannot approve of any activity that is illegal. If they allow it to happen at a younger age, they can be prosecuted for child abuse.
No, as long as your not three years older then him or her your okay.
uhhh I think he might because it might be considered rape, even if the impregnated person was willing.. But I'm not sure if that applies if the male is not 18 or over.. Good luck if you are the 14 year old, but I hope you're not...;)
Not in the US. And in fact, even when you turn 18, there are (currently) very few states where you will be allowed to marry her. Where's the father?
I would say no as she is over the age of consent which is 16.
I take it she is over the age of consent by the way you asked this question ! I am afraid she would be liable as the adult in this relationship so could get into trouble.
Can a 19 year old boy go to jail for getting a 16 year old girl pregnant with both parents consent in new york state?
It is a crime to have sex with two minors or for the matter one minor and one adult in the state of New York, but the two will be tried by Juvenile court.
It depends on where he lives. If the age of consent is 16 or under then no, he cannot go to jail. If the age of consent is over 16, then it is possible depending on the severity of the offense where he lives.

If a girl gets pregnant at 16 with a 19 year old in Minnesota but lives in California will he go to jail?
yes because no matter where you get pregnant at, if you are underage the legal age person will get in trouble no matter where he is at.
If a girl gets pregnant at 16 with a 19 year old in Minnesota but lives in California and The legal age of consent in Minnesota is 16 will he go to jail?
No. What counts is where the sex took place so since you had sex in Minnesota no laws were broken. If he however visits you in California and have sex with you before you are 18yo, that is statutory rape.
Could and should. Rape is rape. A 16 year old has no business having a 23 year old playing doll with her. She is a child and the 23 year old is an adult. He should be dealt with in no uncertain terms and hopefully very severely.
Chances are child support for the first 18 years of their child's life. He is not likely to get jail or prison, as most states say 16 is legal for sex and others have exceptions for being within 3 years of age.
Yes. The 19 year old is an adult and the 16 year old is a minor.
Yes, probably, as sexual contact between you two is illegal in all 50 States. For more information, see the Related Link below.
Yes. The age of consent for sexual intercourse is 18; if both people are under 18, then the age of consent is 16.
maybe, it's all a matter of where you live the law differs state to state.
yes, it is known as sexual assult. so if you have engaged in sexual relations with a minor, i suggest you run away.
Well im not very aquanted with the AOSC in Texas but technically yes by the fact that you are 19 albeit an adult so if the parents press charges ur as good as gone but if the girl and parents have no problem with it you are perfectly safe
It depends where you live, but most states would not prosecute when two teens are so close to the same age. Make sure whatever decisions are made, to offer support to the girl. It is time to step up to the plate and act like an adult. If she is going to keep the baby - remember it is yours too and …you are also responsible for the care and financial support. ( Full Answer )
Yes, if the parents wish to press charges. The age of consent is 18 in CA so the 16 year old is a minor while the 19 year old is an adult.
Yes, unless you have been legally married in a state that allows such unions. California's age of consent is 18 and, unlike most other states, even if the older person is within three (3) years of the younger person ("close-in-age" rule), the older person may still be charged with a misdemeanor. O…ver three (3) years of difference may result in either misdemeanor or felony charges. If the older person is 21 or over and the younger person is under 16, the penalties may be even harsher.

If the guy is 18 and over and the girl or parents report it to police, yes. But I believe with bail. 17 & younger, no. It's not illegal.
2-20 years in prison although you have a affirmative defense if there's no more than 3 years between you so it might not be 20.
Can a boy of 18 years old go to jail for getting pregnant a 16 year old even if the girl agreed in getting pregnant?
This depends on the laws on the state and if the parents want to press charges.
Yes. Location is irrelevant to ability of getting someone pregnant. And given that she's 16 and most likely have started having her menstrual cycle already, she's very capable of getting pregnant. That is unless for some reason she's unable to have children due to a medical issue. But in general,… yes, you can get her pregnant. You shouldn't sleep with her anyway, she's still a minor. ( Full Answer )
Probably not. The youngest legal age to have sex is 16 in most places, but could be 17 or 18 in some places. There are also laws about relationships between the two (instructor/student, employee/supervisor) so check the local laws to make sure.
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.
Well the deed is done so now you should support her in what ever she chooses to do. I would also suggest you look up the law in your state regarding statutory rape since unless she had reached the age of consent in your state when you had sex you can go to prison for it. There might also be close in… age exceptions to the law. If she decides to keep it you will need a job so you can pay child support since you are not married. ( Full Answer )
