I am 16 years old and I lied about my age to a 43 year old he picked me up one night and I drugged him and raped him now I'm pregnant and he doesn't know
Sounds like homework.
If this is a real problem, you are facing criminal charges in the juvenile system. You are also facing CPS involvement once your child is born given your potential convictions for rape and distribution of narcotics. Sounds like you would also test positive, and your baby might also test positive.
The father of the child might qualify to have joint or even sole custody of the child since he presumably won't have convictions on his record . and is probably more able to provide for the needs of a child. It's unclear whether he could even form the intent to engage in sex given that you drugged him. If he could form the intent, then he is potentially guilty of statutory rape, even with your lie.
You should talk with an attorney who specializes in juvenile criminal defense for more specific advise.
Neil Pedersen agrees with this answer
you should contact a lawyer who handles both criminal and family law...or 2 separate lawyers.
are you going to have the baby?
if you know how to find the guy, then you have to decide what you want to do after consulting with a lawyer.
be careful as you have criminal exposure.
A: I strongly encourage you to seek immediate help from a professional who can provide guidance and support. What you did is a serious criminal offense, and you could face legal consequences for your actions. Additionally, you should seek medical attention to ensure that your pregnancy is progressing safely and discuss your options with a healthcare provider. It's important to take responsibility for your actions and seek the help you need. You may also want to consider speaking with a therapist or counselor who can help you address any underlying issues that may have led to your behavior.
