You need to clarify that it’s sex with someone under the age of consent, or at least explicitly state you’re referring to cases in the United States only. There are multiple countries in the world where the age of consent is 12, which is a pre-teen. For example, Mexico at the federal level sets it at 12, and only about half of the Mexico states have their own laws setting the age higher than that. The Mexican state of Nayarit simply says puberty, so if a girl is an early bloomer and starts getting her period at 11, technically she’s legal to have consensual sex with.
