  • 24 year old male got 17 year old pregnant

    I'll be 18 in November and i just found out im pregnant my bf is 24 and we dont know if this is gonna cause legal problems and we're scared out our minds and no one is pressing charges at all but can something still go wrong?

    The age of consent in Washington is sixteen-years old. This means, it is not illegal for a 24 year old to have sexual relations with a 17 or 16 year old. Of course, there are a few exceptions. If your boyfriend is a "supervisor" of you in some way; for example: he is your school teacher or your employer, he could have violated the law and should talk to an attorney right away. With the limited information I have from your email, both of you should not worry about any criminal legal consequences.
