If I am 20 and my girlfriend is 16, can i be charged with a felony?

Asked almost 4 years ago - De Pere, WI

My girlfriend and I are happily together and want to try for a kid. She will be 16 and I'm going to be 20. With parental consent is okay for us to try? And me not having to worry about getting charged with a felony?

    Answered . WI STAT 948.02(2) says if she is not yet 16 and you have intercourse it is a class "C" Felony.

    If the parents don't act then they fall under 948.02(3) and it is a class "F" felony.

    Further, even if you were married it still is against 948.02(4).

    So, my answer is NO not until she is 16 at least.
