Can you still be punished if you ran away in Louisiana when you were 17 years old if you're not found until you are 18 years old?
At 18 years old, you are an adult. Even so, if you have not committed any crimes and have lived as a good citizen before that, you should not fear any consequences from the government. However, you may have damaged your relationships with your family and that will take time to repair.

In February of 1882, R. C. Cameron reported evidence ofplacer mining for gold on Rocky Bayou and Bayou Darro. Hewas ridiculed and scoffed at so he sent samples of the creek bottomsands to New Orleans and the Assayers, Claussen andLynch, reported that the sands of these creek bottoms wouldyield per t…on; $19.80 in silver ore and $179.84 in gold. In April, 1887, Edourd Gillard took 150 workers into thearea and made a number of excavations. The project was successfulas far as finding gold and silver but was not profitable and theproject was abandoned. Don Jose Bernardo Maxmillio Gutierrez de Lardo was amerchant and blacksmith at Revilla, a village near thejunction of the Rio Salado and the Rio Grande inMexico. Gutierrez was a follower of Padres HidalgoCastillo and Jose Maria Moralas who were encouraging arevolt among the Peons and Mestizos (half breeds) tooverthrow the government of Mexico. Gutierrez, with Captain Jose Janchesca, a deserter ofthe Mexican Royalist army, and ten others leftRevilla with $30,000 in Mexican gold with which theywere to finance a filibustering expedition into Texas. Themen were pursued by the Mexican Royalist milita as far as LaVille Du Bayou (now Jordan Ferry, 3 miles west of Lake End). Thereare several confusing reports that the gold was taken by theRoyalists troops and squandered by them. Gutierrezstated this fact but Manchaca stated that the gold was lostto bandits while Gutierrez was on his way overland toNatchez. Gutierrez was transporting the gold in atwo-wheeled cart when he left Natchitoches but did not havethe gold or cart when he had reached the land of Fiol whosupposedly had a way station near present Day Dry Prong.Fiol did have several way stations along the Natchez Trace.Not long thereafter Gutierrez returned toNatchitoches and reported losing the gold to LandPirates and procured a loan of $200.00 from Dr. JohnSibley with which he went to Washington to seek supportfor his filibustering expedition into Texas. The questionremains; did he hide the gold or was he robbed? None ofMexican minted gold eagles ever turned up in theNatchitoches area. This is just one of the many stories oflost treasures in the Grant Parish area. In March, 1887, a number of Indian relics, such as flints,pottery, etc., was unearthed on the main street of Colfax, by Lindsey, who wasexcavating a ditch. Among the old Creoles and their slaves, a belief existed thatSpanish treasure was buried in Indian Hill, two miles east of the present town of Colfax, and inanother hill three miles north of the town. R. C. Cameron, who gave the subject someattention, writes, in February, 1887, that indications of old placer mines existed here, the watersof Rocky Bayou and Bayou Darro being used for washing. Indeed, Mr.Cameron round what he termed gold, but the discovery was ridiculed until April, 1887, whenClaussen & Lynch, assayers, of New Orleans, showed $ 19.80 in silver and $ 179.84 ingold per ton of sand. In 1830 a Spaniard, named Raphael, told Edourd Gillardthat there was gold in the hills. Both went thither, and collecting a small quantity of earth and rocks,shipped it to Washington, D. C. for assay. The report was not favorable, and the mine wasabandoned. Mrs. Cora Lacour recollects hearing her father and others speak ofthis venture. Yes gold has been and is still being found in Louisiana. Thecreek beds around Jena and Natchitoches have producedgold. There is even a gold hunting club that hunts aroundJena. We have not even mention the ancient caves in theNatchitoches area. So ya people :) (MORE)

You just found out that there are two bench warrant from 2003 in the state of Louisiana one is a misdemeanor stolen property the other they said was a felony because there were three of us in the sam?
The question was cut off but I'll try to address the info that WAS given; A POSSIBLE reason for the escalation of the offense from a misdemeanor to a felony could be the fact that, after the issuance of the first warrant, law enforcement learned that more people than just you were involved, which ra…ised the level of the offense to a CONSPIRACY, which made the offense a felony. If you know that you have warrants outstanding for you it would in your best interest to take care of them or they will continue to hang over you for the rest of your life. Just like "Murphy's Law," some day when you least expect AND at the worst possible time, you'll wind up arrested and in jail. (MORE)
