Is the father in jail for rape?

A simple DNA test can answer that question. If not, the DNA test can identify who the father/rapist is, making it easy for prosecution.

Is having sex with a 14 year old a crime in Wisconsin? Are there any legal exceptions that would allow a 14 year old girl to voluntarily consent to sex?

Let's hope the media prints a story about the rapist's arrest.

Any girl who, at age 16, already has a child who is 16 months old, must necessarily come from a screwed up home. Come on, System, please identify Faith's parents, and explain exactly what precipitated her leaving home. Faith, if you read this comment, please know that once you are age 18 you can sue the hell out of your screwed up parents for every abusive act that they ever perpetrated against you, including the torts of Intentional Infliction of Emotional Distress and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress.

Sue over lousy parenting. That should work well.
