Has Your Son or Daughter Been Arrested in Florida?
Contact Bauer Crider & Parry
Medical science is now discovering what parents have always known: Teenagers are impulsive. Good kids can make bad choices.
The areas of the brain that regulate impulsive behavior do not mature until late adolescence or young adulthood. Yet in Florida, juveniles aged 14 — and sometimes younger — can be tried as adults.
Keeping Juveniles in the Juvenile System
At Bauer Crider & Parry, our first priority is to keep juvenile crime cases in juvenile court. The purpose of the juvenile court system is to rehabilitate a youth. Many more diversionary programs and second chances are available in the juvenile system.
Whether they are treated as adults or juveniles, however, anyone accused of a crime should be represented by a competent attorney. At Bauer Crider & Parry, we have decades of experience representing juveniles accused of all felony and misdemeanor crimes, including:
- Drug possession
- Underage drinking
- Traffic offenses
- DUI, drunk driving
- Weapons charges
- Sex crimes
Don't let one bad choice ruin your child's future. Contact the criminal defense specialists at our firm to arrange a free consultation about how to handle charges of juvenile crime. Our lawyers will tell you exactly what you are facing and advise you of your legal rights and options.

Should you decide to retain our law firm, we will take immediate action to protect your child's rights and minimize the potential consequences. We may be able to negotiate with the prosecutor to get the charges reduced or the case dismissed. Or we may advise you to take the case before a judge and jury, if that is the best way to get the desired results for you.
