North Florida District has Largest Drop in White Collar Federal Prosecutions in Nation
By Staff

The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during June 2018 the government reported 503 new white collar crime prosecutions. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), this number is up 4.4 percent over the previous month. The comparisons of the number of defendants charged with white collar crime-related offenses are based on case-by-case information obtained by TRAC under the Freedom of Information Act from the Executive Office for United States Attorneys. When monthly 2018 prosecutions are compared with those of the same period in the previous year, the number of filings was down (-2.6%). Prosecutions over the past year are still much lower than they were five years ago. Overall, the data show that prosecutions of this type are down 31.6 percent from levels reported in 2013. In June 2018 the Justice Department said the government brought 175.3 white collar crime prosecutions for every ten million people in the United States.
