I live in the state of Florida. By son just turned 16 and his girlfriend is 14. When my son was 15, the girl became pregnant. She is now in the hospital to have the baby and was confronted by a social worker. The social worker wants to speak the girls mother and told her that she needed to get law enforcement involved and have my son removed from the girls birthing room. Can my son be charged with anything since he was 15 and she 14 at the time of the pregnancy? What about us as parents, could we be charged with anything?

I am currently a 23 year old male military member living in

I am currently a 23 year old male military member living in the State of Alaska. A 16 year old girl was texting me and we made plans to meet up. She also sent two pictures wearing a bra and underwear. I did not send any pictures. I then got a text from someone else stating that she would not make the meeting and that local news, authorities, and military authorities would be contacted. As far as I know, the age of consent according to both Alaska and military law is 16. Do I have anything to worry about?

I feel like I'm being scammed. age of consent in GA is 16

I feel like I'm being scammed. age of consent in GA is 16 I'm 25. I met a girl on a dating sight that you have to be 18 to be on. no sexual pictures were exchanged (though she asked for them repeatedly) and she also asked me to describe in detail what I would do though all I ever said was I would kiss her lips softly. she told me she was going to be 17 in a week as well as moving into her own place. when she kept asking for pictures I would just humor her and tell her she could see it in person. I asked her if she wanted to meet me in a public place ex. Walmart at which she asked if we were going back to my place. I said no I'd like to just talk and get to know you If that's ok. I get a call later from the "father" threatening to take the phone to the local police. he said he would "stick his neck out" to his wife and that I should assist in paying for a plane ticket and counseling for the girl. I feel like I am being scammed I never had intentions on doing anything sexual with the girl. the worst it got was she said "would you eat my pussy" and I said sure. also instead of sending a pic I said " I wear magnums you wouldnt be disappointed" and described the width. can I be charged with anything even though she was over the age of consent law in GA? no sexual pictures were exchanged.
