Jason R. Coody, United States Attorney for the Northern District of Florida announced today that the Northern District of Florida collected $4,367,699.63 in criminal and civil actions in Fiscal Year 2022. Of this amount, $3,831,162.71 was collected in criminal actions and $536,536.92 was collected in civil actions. 

“These impressive numbers are the result of the hard work by our office’s civil and criminal divisions, and strong coordination with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners,” said U.S. Attorney Coody.  “This office will always seek to recover every dollar possible from those who engage in illegal activities so that those funds can be restored to the federal treasury, and help victims recover from crimes perpetrated against them.”

The Northern District of Florida Criminal Division collected $1,270,500.00 from John Thomas Burnette following his conviction at trial and sentencing for a multi-year scheme involving extortion, fraud, and bribery.
