Probably. The legal age of majority is 18 but apparently Texas police won't generally force a 17-year-old to move back in with their parents. If you leave home without parental consent, then anyone who takes you in--even if they are a relative--can be facing charges for doing so. Texas does have laws against harboring a runaway. There could possibly be other charges as well.
