You risk being charged with a sex crime and then possibly having to register as a sex offender...Read more »
It doesn't matter what his parents approved of and I am sure they didn't "approve" of their son being a teen father. You could be charged criminally--that is a possibility but someone would have to complain to the police first and then the state's attorney's office would determine if they are...Read more »
There can be a lot of things you could be charged with--she is a minor and I hope you aren't having sex with a minor. Ditch the girlfriend--if she or her parent's ever get mad at you and call the police, then you can be in a world of trouble
