Former Marinette County DA talks about his resignation and future

Former Marinette Co. district attorney Allen Brey talks with Robert Hornacek on CW 14 Focus

(WCWF) -- This week on CW 14 Focus host Robert Hornacek will be joined by former Marinette County district attorney Allen Brey.

Brey, who spent 35 years as a prosecutor, resigned from his position this month because he says his office is over-worked and under-staffed. Brey says that has led to a two-year backlog of cases.

"I know I've done my best. Do I wish I could've done better? Who doesn't. I'm satisfied. I've given my all and done my best. No one can do more than that," Brey said.

Brey is pushing for the state to add more prosecutors not just in Marinette but across the state.
