Millions Collected From Criminal Cases by Federal Prosecutors in New York
Over $4 million have been collected by Federal Prosecutors from criminal and civil cases in the Northern District of New York.
U.S. Attorney Richard Hartunian says that includes $2.6 million from criminal prosecutions.
Prosecutors say another $14 million came in during the last fiscal year, which ended September 30, in cases worked with other agencies outside of the U.S. Justice Department and $11 million came from work with other federal agencies and divisions.
Forfeited and seized money and assets go to the Justice Department Asset Forfeiture Fund, which makes allocations to crime victims and law enforcement agencies.
