In 2011, Amendments to the ADA were approved under the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act (ADAAA).

Statutory rape occurs when a person over the age of consent engages in sexual intercourse with someone under the statutory age of consent, also known as a minor.
In the United States, age of consent laws regarding sexual activity are made at the state level.
There are several federal statutes related to protecting minors from sexual predators, but laws regarding specific age requirements for sexual consent are left to individual states, District of Columbia, and territories.
