Absolutely nothing in Torrington, Ct. They catch you and bring you to the station make sure your ok and release you to your parents. * It depends upon the state and if the minor has a history of leaving home against parental wishes. If the minor has a record of being a runaway or absentee minor, the court consider the minor to be "incorregible" and have them remanded into juvenile custody in a group home or other court supervised facility. In any case an investigation will be done by the state's department of family and children's services to determine the reason for the action and if warranted, request the juvenile court to take the appropriate action.
