Feds Prosecuting Fewest Criminals Since 2007
By Kathyrn Watson

Federal prosecutors are hauling fewer criminals into court than they have since 2007, according to Department of Justice (DOJ) data compiled by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC). Federal criminal prosecutions for July 2016, at 9,118 new prosecutions, were the lowest of any month on record since July 2007, according to TRAC. If the government continues at the same pace, there will be 135,530 criminal prosecutions in fiscal year 2016, also the lowest since 2007. That’s a significant drop from fiscal year 2013, when criminal prosecutions easily topped 170,000 — the highest in at least the last two decades. The federal government is still on track to prosecute more criminals in 2016 than it did in any given year from 1996 to 2007.
