Quoting speaktruth2powr:" California Penal Code - 261.5. (a) Unlawful sexual intercourse is an act of sexual intercourse accomplished ... [snip!] ... of this section, a "minor" is a person under the age of 18 years and an "adult" is a person who is at least 18 years of age."

But it also goes on to state in the very next section, that it's punishable if the adult is 21 or older and the minor is 16 or under. So legally, the age of consent is 18, but the adult won't be charged if the minor is over 16.

Quoting Mrs.O!:" in majority of states 17 is the age for consensual sex..and if you're 18 I don't think it matters, as long as the baby is born after you're 18. "


Each state has a different law. The age of consent ranges from 16-18 years of age.

Quoting bbbt:" Sixteen is the age of consent, so no, he can't get in trouble. You're fine. "


Wrong. In CA it's 18.
& The statute of limitation is 5yrs. So yes, technically, he can still get in trouble for it.

Yes he could but I highly doubt they would. He could be charged with a felonh technically since he's 3 or more years older than you. Age of consent is 18 in California as is 11 other states

She cant do anything since you will be 18 when baby born. Now if you were 17 then that would be a different story. But nobody going give a care. So if she calls she'll be wasting her time and theres.

If there is less than a 3 year age difference, it is a misdemeanor.
If there is more than a 3 year age difference, it is a felony.

(c) Any person who engages in an act of unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor who is more than three years younger than the perpetrator is guilty of either a misdemeanor or a felony, and shall be punished by imprisonment in a county jail not exceeding one year, or by imprisonment in the state prison.

No, because like I said, the statute of limitations is 5 years in CA... not sure about AZ though.
