Summary

Andrew Tetreault (pronounced Tay-tro) grew up all over the United States, though spending most of his life in the Midwest and the South. Andrew attended college at Ohio Wesleyan University, just outside of Columbus, Ohio, and received a Bachelor's degree as a double major.

After college, Andrew enrolled at Tulane University Law School in New Orleans, Louisiana. During the fall of 2005, Hurricane Katrina caused a disaster in New Orleans and Tulane was shut down for the entire fall semester. In order to graduate law school on time, Andrew enrolled as a visiting student at the University of Florida College of Law. After one semester at the University of Florida, Andrew returned to Tulane and was a member of the Criminal Defense Clinic at Tulane Law school, and assisted criminal defendants displaced by Hurricane Katrina.

While at the University of Florida, Andrew was offered a position at the Pinellas County State Attorney's Office, where he would work as a prosecutor for four and a half years. Working as a prosecutor gave Andrew invaluable and extensive courtroom and trial experience handling traffic, misdemeanor, and felony cases.

In order to serve the legal needs of the Tampa Bay area, Andrew started his own law firm in 2011. In 2012, Andrew started a new law firm with his friend and former Assistant State Attorney Lee M. Pearlman. When Lee and Andrew opened the doors of the Law Offices of Pearlman & Tetreault, they agreed that their practice should be based on the concepts of open communication with cleints, aggressive legal representation, and hard work on behalf of their clients.

Q. Can I be charged with contributing to the delinquency of a child for telling my kids to lie & say I wasn't home when pol
A: You can probably be charged with it, sure. The elements of the crime criminalize adult conduct which causes, tends to cause, encourages or contributes to a child becoming a delinquent (see Fla. Stat. 827.04 for greater detail and exact wording). That being said, the facts in your case may or may not support a conviction and a qualified defense attorney may be able to help you get the charge dropped entirely.
