JAN. 17 - U.S. Attorneys’ Offices Helped Collect $6.68 Billion in 2010

U.S. Attorney Edward J. Tarver announced that financial collections by the Department of Justice in criminal and civil actions in Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 reached an all-time high due to the efforts of the U.S. Attorneys’ offices nationwide. The 94 U.S. Attorneys’ offices nation-wide collected $6.68 billion during the government’s fiscal year. This amount is the most successful collection year by the U.S. Attorneys’ offices.

According to statistics from the Department of Justice, the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of Georgia collected $6,608,814.65 in FY 2010. Of this amount, $1,746,098.65 was collected in criminal actions and $2,783,017 was collected in civil actions. Additionally, the office collected $2,079,699 in criminal and civil forfeitures.

“During this time of national economic uncertainty, these collections are more important than ever,” said U.S. Attorney Edward Tarver. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office is dedicated to protecting the public and recovering funds for the federal treasury and for victims of federal crime. We will continue to hold accountable those who seek to profit from their illegal activities.”
