US attorney’s office in Arizona collects $7.7M in 2013

PHOENIX — The U.S. attorney’s office for the District of Arizona has
claimed more than $7.7 million from civil and criminal actions in fiscal year

U.S. Attorney John S. Leonardo announced the amount in a news release Thursday.

Leonardo said about $4.8 million came from criminal cases and $2.9 million from
civil actions.

His office also raked in an additional $519 million from cases pursued jointly
with other U.S. Attorney’s Offices as well as the U.S. Department of Justice.

According to Leonardo, the largest civil collections stemmed from cases where
federal officials recovered money lost to fraud or misconduct, as well as fines
for violations of federal health, safety, civil rights or environmental laws.

The District of Arizona also collected $13.3 million in asset forfeiture
