Peter Munsing's answer You can't shoot them (I'm assuming you are not in your car). If you did you need to ask that this be taken down by the website, avoid any questions on social media, and contact an attorney at once.
Robert Donald Gifford II's answer You need to contact a law enforcement officer, or maybe even your state AG's Office to register a complaint. The squeaky wheel gets the attention, so if you are serious about it - then complain in writing (with documented evidence) to every agency you can (DA, AG, local law enforcement, etc.).
Paul Stanko's answer If he doesn't know how to plead, he should probably plead not guilty. It is generally not wise to plead guilty at the arraignment. If he is not happy with his public defender, he should seek private counsel.
Paul Stanko's answer It is up to the prosecutor which charges to file. A prosecutor will look at the facts, the elements of a particular offense, and determine whether he has enough evidence to prove the defendant guilty beyond a reasonable doubt. If not, then he will not file charges.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer Yes, that can happen. If it does, the child will become just another missing child and the parents will worry incessantly. In addition, the 18 year old can probably be charged with some very serious crimes, the least of which would probably be contributing.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer Your freedom is a serious matter, and the case against you appears to be very serious. Get counsel immediately. The attorney you hire will investigate the facts and circumstances and will represent you diligently and accordingly.
Robert Jason De Groot's answer "Child" means a person under the age of eighteen (18) years. That is in (a) (i) from the 2011 statutes. But a simple internet search reveals, on google, this:The age of consent for sex is 16 years old for women, while it is 18 years old for men. Having sex with a minor below the age of consent is known as statutory rape. The age of consent law in Wyoming only specifically addresses heterosexual conduct.
This must mean that the court in Wyoming has interpreted it, that there are cases...
Robert Jason De Groot's answer With an active warrant for your arrest, you can be arrested at any time, and in any place. That is what you should expect. What you need to do now is hire an attorney in Iowa to address that active warrant. Without doing that, you will be constantly looking over your shoulder.
