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 Bay City, Michigan. We are funded by County general fund dollars and employ 6 attorneys and 5 support staff. Each year we process approximately 2,000-3,000 misdemeanors, 400-700 felonies, a large number of probate cases, actions for child support and paternity, and handle all criminal appeals to the Michigan Court of Appeals and the Michigan Supreme Court.
The Prosecutor’s office utilizes the most recent technologies for law enforcement and provides leadership and training across the U.P. to police agencies and prosecutors. We are one of six jurisdictions in the country that are implementing the Blueprint for Safety, a model domestic violence project funded by a $419,000 grant from the US Department of Justice. Cindy Boyer serves as our victim/witness coordinator to assist victims of crime with the criminal justice process. Additionally, our office utilizes the services of “Harv” an English Lab canine advocate, who is a certified service dog that provides friendly and comforting support to victims of crime.
