Sworn into office this January as Sacramento County’s new District Attorney, Anne Marie Schubert succeeded her former boss Jan Scully, who retired this past December.
The 25-year career prosecutor was a top candidate to fill the DA position. With the endorsement of Scully and local law enforcement leaders, Schubert ran a strong campaign last year earning 58 percent of the vote.
“The support I received from law enforcement, the community and my peers during the campaign was incredible.” said Schubert. “Now my focus is on tackling Sacramento County’s public safety issues through both prosecution and prevention efforts.”
Schubert, 51, is known for being a cold case prosecutor who is passionate about forensic DNA and an advocate for victims of sexual assault, child abuse, murder, and domestic violence. She has demonstrated exemplary knowledge of the law with more than 100 jury trials. Her competence in the court room has earned her the respect of colleagues across the criminal justice system.
The passion for her life’s work has earned her the DA’s Prosecutor of the Year award in 2007, and the Peace Officer Standards and Training Institute of Criminal Investigation (POST ICI) Instructor of the year award twice over.
Schubert’s experience supervising homicide, special assault, and child abuse units and her success in helping to form innovative community programs have positioned her well to serve the public in this new leadership role.
Anne Marie was raised in Sacramento and is now raising her two boys here. When not working, she enjoys outdoor activities with her family.
