Matt J. Wiese, Prosecutor
Welcome to the web page for the Marquette County Prosecuting Attorney.
We have tried to put information about a variety of common concerns on our site.
I hope we can help you.
The Marquette County Prosecuting Attorney oversees the largest prosecutor's office north of Grand Rapids Michigan. We are funded by County general fund dollars and employ 6 attorneys and 6 support staff. Each year we process about 3,000 misdemeanors, 400 felonies, a large number of probate cases, hundreds of actions for child support and paternity, handle a full load of criminal appeals and a full time civil practice.
We are on the cutting edge of law enforcement and provide training for U.P. police agencies and prosecutors. We have a model domestic violence project, funded by a $250,000 federal grant. Our office has represented the People of the State of Michigan before the Michigan Supreme Court on numerous cases. We also have a full time victim/witness coordinator to help victims deal with the criminal justice process.
