    Ohio Statutory Rape Law
    (A) No person who is eighteen years of age or older shall engage in sexual conduct with another, who is not the spouse of the offender, when the offender knows the other person is thirteen years of age or older but less than sixteen years of age, or the offender is reckless in that regard.

    (B) Whoever violates this section is guilty of corruption of a minor, a felony of the fourth degree. If the offender is less than four years older than the other person, corruption of a minor is a misdemeanor of the first degree.

    Basically if a 16 year old as sex with a 13 year old there is no criminal act. The only persons possibly effected by the action of the children are the parents of the children. If the parents knew the children were engaging in sexual activity and didn't attempt to stop them then technically it'd negelct on their part. Not sure what the circumstances surrounding the incident are. If anyone has any questions let me know. Additionally, if any of the parties want info on adoption let me know.

    As long as the kid is at least 13 there won't be that big of a problem. A similar thing happened to some people I knew, except that the girl was 16 and the boy she was pregnant from was 12. She got in some trouble but it was still not that big of deal.

    P.S. that is a lucky dude to be bangin a 16 year old!

    Normally there should not be any trouble, This does not appear to fall within the Rape laws of your state.

    But remember that if one or both parents start calling the authorities, child welfare (sorry both parties fall under as children)

    The state could investigate this to see if either or both parents are fit and if the court needs to intrude into the situation.

    There does not always have to be a criminal act merely inappropate actions for the state to become invovled. Allowing your children of that age to have sex could be considered as poor parenting.

    Doubt it would happen, but if one or both parties start hiring lawyers and the such anything can happen.

    The most important issue at this point is to be honest and tell the parents.
    They will find out, so don't put it off. Getting the proper medical treatment, vitimans prenatial care of the baby is very important.

    Also if the families do not wish to keep the baby, there are a lot of great adoption options. I myself am adopted and the right loving family that wants a new baby can be often the best choice. But it is always a choice.

    Generally, 16 is considered the "age of consent." Therefore, when an adult has sexual relations with someone under the age of 16 it is statutory rape. However, that may not be the case with someone who is under 18 (as is the case with the 16 year-old girl in question.) Talk to an attorney for full information.
