    Joelyn D. Marlowe

    Joelyn D. Marlowe has been a career prosecutor for more than twenty years. She began prosecuting misdemeanor crimes at the Tucson City Prosecutor’s Office as an intern while still in law school. Thereafter, at the Pima County Attorney’s Office in Tucson, she prosecuted felony offenses and specialized in prosecuting child and adult sexual abuse cases. She currently is an Assistant United States Attorney at the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Arizona in Tucson where she has dedicated the greater part of her legal career to prosecuting federal crimes.
    Her first career was teaching research and essay writing to collegebound students in a Nebraska high school. Thus, once she became an attorney, it was no surprise that she endeavored to combine her legal knowledge and experience with her teaching skills. Accordingly, for many years, Joelyn simultaneously maintained a part-time position as an adjunct professor at Pima Community College where she taught the Federal Rules of Evidence to paralegal students. She employed her unique sense of humor, her love of the substantive law embodied in the rules of evidence, and her experience in the courtroom to enhance her students’ appreciation and understanding of evidentiary law. When she is not working, Joelyn often spends her free time traveling the world. Her special love and seemingly second home is in a small countryside village in Tuscany, Italy.
