    Lawyers agree

    Answered . Not by getting pregnant, but by having sex with a minor. This is in violation of Ohio Revised Code Section 2907.04 - Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor. It is a misdemeanor of the 1st degree and is punishable by 180 days in jail and a $1,000 fine because they are less than 4 years apart.

    Answered . Yes. She could be charged with Unlawful Sexual Conduct with a Minor and/or contributing to the delinquency of a minor. This is probably unlikely but is possible.
