Grand Jury Proceedings in Clearwater, Florida

Trust the Counsel of Our Clearwater Criminal Defense Lawyers

In some cases, a Grand Jury determines whether the government has enough evidence to indict a person who has been accused of a crime. Without a Grand Jury indictment, there will be no trial; the accused will walk away.

When Are Grand Juries Used?

In Florida, a Grand Jury indictment is only required when a person is accused of a capital (death penalty) offense. Grand Juries are also used to indict public officials accused of wrongdoing.

At Bauer Crider Kenny & Parry, our Clearwater criminal defense attorneys help clients prepare to give testimony in Grand Jury proceedings involving homicide and other offenses.

Battered Spouse Accused of Murder: No Indictment

One of our clients was a battered wife who shot and killed her husband. The State was considering an indictment for first degree murder. We demonstrated that it was an act of self-defense by arranging for our client and many others to testify about the physical abuse her husband had subjected her to.

We have also represented public officials and others accused of white collar crimes in Grand Jury proceedings. For example, we represented a property appraiser who was accused of involvement in a land scam. Our goal in these cases is to protect the rights of the individual and defend the role he or she played in the circumstances in question.

A Favorable Decision from a Grand Jury Can Stop Criminal Prosecution in its Tracks

Early intervention by a skilled Clearwater criminal defense lawyer can help put your case to rest before it begins. If you have been subpoenaed to appear before a state or federal Grand Jury, it is important to seek experienced legal representation as soon as possible.
