San Angelo, TX |

to further explain the question if a minor has ran away before and no legal action was taken and the minor ran away again what legal consequences could they face? if they are placed on probation and run away again can they be placed in a juvenile corrections facility?

For just running away and no other crime committed, they cannot go to TJJD/TYC, but they can be put on probation until their 18th birthday in the custody of the probation department and removed from their home.
