Anne Marie Schubert is a career prosecutor with 28 years of law enforcement experience. As a Sacramento County prosecutor, she has sent some of the area’s most notorious and dangerous criminals – murderers, rapists and child molesters – to state prison. One of Anne Marie’s passions is the pursuit of justice through DNA evidence and cold case prosecution. She formed the Cold Case Prosecution Unit in 2002, and served as its first prosecutor. Today, she is a nationally recognized forensic DNA expert. Anne Marie has also created innovative community programs focused on helping children by combating truancy, and honoring citizens who have helped to serve justice with the development of the Annual Outstanding Citizen Awards Ceremony. During her career as a prosecutor, Anne Marie has been recognized by her peers with the Prosecutor of the Year Award and the POST ICI Instructor of the Year Award.
Anne Marie was elected Sacramento County’s District Attorney in 2014. Since taking office in 2015, she has been committed to working both in the courtroom and in the community to provide the highest level of public safety through prosecution, prevention and innovation.
One of her first priorities was to create the Community & Government Relations (CGR) Bureau. CGR brings all of the office’s community related efforts under one umbrella to maximize reach, increase accessibility and communication between the office and citizens and allow for a greater positive impact across the county. Under CGR, a number of new partnerships and innovative programs have been created to prevent crime, and to engage, educate and better the community.
These community outreach, education and early intervention efforts remain a goal and priority for Anne Marie. Under her leadership, the office will continue to create new partnerships with law enforcement, schools, businesses, community organizations and individual citizens to protect public safety and the quality of life for everyone who lives and works in the Sacramento region.
