Federal Prosecution Referrals Plummeted in April Amid Worst of CCP Virus Pandemic
By Mark Tapscott

Federal prosecutors filed 80 percent fewer cases in April than just two months earlier due to the effects of the CCP Virus pandemic, according to data made public by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. “New criminal prosecutions dropped by 80 percent between February and April, from 13,843 during February 2020, before federal shutdowns to control the spread of COVID-19 began, to just 2,824 in April 2020. This means that only one-fifth the usual prosecutions took place,” TRAC said in a report made public May 28.
