Flint, MI asked in Criminal Law, Juvenile Law and Military Law for Michigan

Q: Can an 18 year old Marine get in trouble for getting both a 17 year old and 16 year old pregnant?

He was engaged to the 17 year old, and cheated on her not knowin she was pregnant. When she was 4 1/2 weeks along, he found out about her being pregnant and dumped me. He leaves for the Marines October 11th, could he potentially get kicked out of the Marines if I report him/ get in legal trouble if I report him?

I get that we are both at the age of consent to sex but didn't know about pregnancy and the laws in the military against that

A: So you want to get him in trouble out of revenge? That vindictiveness is short-sighted. How will he support his two illegitimate children without a job?
