    No court anywhere in the land is going to emancipate a pregnant minor. The simple fact that you are pregnant tells the court that you are in need of MORE supervision, not less.

    The age of consent in Oklahoma is 16. Doing the naughty prior to 16 puts the act at the level of a second degree felony. Parents cannot consent for a crime to be committed against a child, so permission or not, yep, it's still a crime - which could see the boyfriend in prison for up to 15 years. See:

    §21-1111.

    A. Rape is an act of sexual intercourse involving vaginal or anal
    penetration accomplished with a male or female who is not the spouse
    of the perpetrator and who may be of the same or the opposite sex as
    the perpetrator under any of the following circumstances:

    1. Where the victim is under sixteen (16) years of age;


    §21-1116.

    Rape in the second degree is a felony punishable by imprisonment in
    the State Penitentiary not less than one (1) year nor more than
    fifteen (15) years.


    The parents who knowlingly participated in allowing access to the child could also face criminal charges of their own.

    And in Oklahoma, emancipation means that you can sign a contract. It does NOT give you the right to leave home without consent, move in with your boyfriend or his family or make your boyfriend's illegal acts retroactively legal.
