Veteran Gwinnett prosecutor joins U.S. Attorney’s Office in Macon

A former assistant district attorney in Gwinnett County was sworn in this week as a prosecutor in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Macon. 

Michael Morrison, who served as a Gwinnett prosecutor since 2008, was sworn in via phone as an assistant DA for U.S. Attorney Charles Peeler. Peeler is the U.S. Attorney for the Middle District of Georgia. 

“Mike is one of the most effective criminal street gang and drug trafficking prosecutors in the state, known for his expertise handling complex cases against dangerous individuals,” Peeler said in an emailed statement. “We are working tirelessly alongside our law enforcement partners to crack down on violent gang and drug activity across the Middle District. Mike strengthens this effort, and we are extremely pleased to have him on our team.”

Morrison supervised the drug and gang task force while working in Gwinnett. He earned both his undergraduate and law degrees from Georgia State University.
