Frank E. Miller began working as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for Cape Girardeau County on January 1, 2011.
Frank is originally from Jackson, Missouri and graduated from Jackson High School in 1998. In 2002, he received a degree from Westminster College in 2002. Frank then attended law school at the University of Missouri – Kansas City and in May 2005 was awarded a J.D. Upon completion of that degree, he took and passed the July 2005 Missouri Bar exam.
After law school, Frank moved to Washington, DC and served as an aide to U.S. Representative Jo Ann Emerson (R-MO) for five years. Frank handled a variety of policy matters for Rep. Emerson pertaining to national defense, energy, the environment, law enforcement, taxes, and transportation. After five years working in the U.S. House of Representatives, Frank decided to return to Missouri to practice law.
“I went to law school to be a prosecutor, and I cannot imagine working in any other area of the law,” states Frank. “While I enjoyed my time working for Rep. Emerson in Washington, DC, Cape Girardeau County is home and I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to work in the place I was born and raised. I have the good fortune to work in an office with many experienced prosecutors. Additionally, it’s a pleasure to work with the professional members of the law enforcement organizations that serve and protect Cape Girardeau County, many of whom I grew up with. I enjoy my occupation because I know I’m working to uphold the law in the county where my family and friends reside.”
While not working, Frank enjoys golf, hunting, fishing, and participating in several civic organizations.
