(Marquette County, MI) – In the past 36, hours, two west Marquette County residents are busted on domestic assault charges, a Gwinn woman on an embezzlement charge, and a Negaunee woman is charged in a fourth degree child abuse case – plus a downstate man is held on a $100,000 contempt of court charges and held without bond in Marquette County on a weapons charge.
fyi – Delta County goes dark and turns soft on DV, like 13 other U.P. Counties – who do not want to admit the crime in their area and thus protect men who commit domestic violence – we believe everyone and especially women have the right to know this information even if their Boss Hogg leaders are asleep at the wheel.
U.P. Breaking News used to provide the detailed arrests in Delta County, but county officials this week stopped revealing charges even in domestic violence cases – because they did not like our editorial accusing them of giving good deals to male abusers. We do not want to miss a DV or assault arrest – so we are now force to print all names – we will be printing all the Delta County arrests later today – a lot of them since Friday.

Pennala, then 29 years old, was charged with felony resisting arrest/obstructing a police officer, and the two misdemeanors – failure to stop at a personal injury accident and operating a motor vehicle while impaired (OWI).
