Thank you for contacting our JA team for guidance.


The 17 year old will continue to be picked up and returned home until they are 18 years old or determined to be emancipated by a court of law. This does not appear to be a case where a court would find the minor to be emancipated, however.


If there is abuse or neglect, the dept. of family services should be contacted.
