Best Answer

Yes. If you were reported as missing, the police would transport you home when located unless you could give them a compelling reason not to, like endangerment.

Why were the Cherokee forced out of Georgia by the state of Georgia?

There is more than one reason: * The Cherokee held a good sized portion of very fertile land, and; * The State of Georgia had sold that land to settlers (without legal title to the land), and; * Cherokee were complaining about this (and killing some settlers who refused to leave), and; * The Cherokee were petitioning the United States to stop the practices, and; * The Cherokee refused to give up the land, or sign a treaty to give away the land, and; * The state of Georgia could get away with doing it as it improved the United States as a whole.

The child will also face juvenile charges in Juvenile court.
