What happens if an 18 year old gets a 16 year old pregnant?

I need to know what would happen if an 18 yr old male, got a 15 year old female pregnant. It was all 100% consensual. She will be turning 16 next month, and he just turned 18. They were both under 18 when the pregnancy occurred. Will my son face any kind of charges like molestation or possible rape due to their ages?

    You should have advised your son that having sex with a girl under 17 is statutory rape and she cannot legally consent. Retain a good criminal lawyer and make sure no one talks to the police no matter what. You cannot let anyone talk to doctors, nurses, or anyone about who the father is or he will be arrested for statutory rape and be a registered sex offender.

    In Michigan he can face up to 15 years in prison since a 15 year old is incapable of giving consent. Even if they say yes it is still a crime.

    A child under the age of consent, cannot by law consent. The fact that the girl may have consented to sex is irrelevant, because she was only 15. Many states have somewhat different laws on this issue so you may want to consult with an attorney in your area. Your son could be looking at statutory rape charges. All things aside, I seriously question the financial and emotional ability of these two individuals to deal with the issues of pregnancy and to care for a new born.
