Sin saber el contexto, creo que sería "Public Ministry".

@wrholt: En México, el Ministerio Público es la fiscalía que ejerce la acción penal cuando se comete o denuncia un delito.
Creo que cumple la función del "public prosecutor", pero no estoy segura.

Oxford gives,
Ministerio Fiscal o Público = Attorney General’s office

Thanks for the description. In the US there are different terms at different levels of government and different jurisdictions.

In the US at the national level this is the U.S. Department of Justice, which is directed by the U.S. Attorney General, who is appointed by the President and is a member of the Cabinet. The USDoJ employs United States Attorneys (also known as "federal prosecutors" and historically as "United States District Attorneys") to handle the work of prosecuting federal criminal cases.

Each U.S. state and territory (American Samoa, District of Columbia, Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, Puerto Rico, Virgin Islands) has its own attorney general whose exact responsibilities are controlled by state/territorial law and who may (or may not) be the head of a state/territorial departmenet of justice or the equivalent. State/territorial attorneys general may be elected (43 states and 1 territory), appointed by the state/territorial governor (5 states and 4 territories) or mayor (Washington, DC), appointed by the legislature (Maine) or appointed by the state supreme court (Tennessee).

Many U.S. states and territories also have several District Attorneys, each of whom is in charge within a specified district (usually a county) within the state or territory; they are either elected officials or appointed by the state or territorial executive (governor or mayor), and they supervise the activities of a particular Office of the District Attorney of/for (jurisdiction), including the associate or assistant district attorneys who handle prosecuting individual cases.

I don't know what the preferred translation into English is for Mexico's "Ministerio Público". However, the Spanish Wikipedia page for "Ministerio Público" links to the English Wikipedia page for "Attorney General".

Well, at this point I'd say, "blanco y en botella" (i.e., "más claro: el agua")

Thank you wrholt!

La función de Ministerio Público Federal la cumple la Procuraduría General de la República; en ese caso, el "Attorney General" es el Procurador.

Los ministerios públicos locales se parecen más a los district attorneys; cumplen sus funciones en los estados y municipios.
