Can my 22 year old fiancé go to jail?
I’m 17 and 8 weeks pregnant. My hospital is getting Child services involved. We’re getting married in February and I’ll be 18 the first of July. He has my parents consent and blessing. I’m really worried. He won’t be there for our Baby cause of them.
Parental consent is not a defense to statutory rape in Missouri, however the age of consent is 17. As long as nothing happened before you turned 17, he will be fine. If you are worried he will not be there for your child, you can speak to a family lawyer about getting custody and support.
