White collar prosecutions lowest in 20 years

TRAC Report - The latest available data from the Justice Department show that during April 2018 the government reported 494 new white collar crime prosecutions. According to the case-by-case information analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, this number is down 14.4 percent over the previous month.

Examining trends over the first seven months of FY 2018, the government reported a total of 3,249 new white collar crime prosecutions. If this level of activity continues at the same pace, the annual total of prosecutions will be 5,570 for this fiscal year - down from last year.

Indeed, current levels represent the lowest number of white collar prosecutions in more than 20 years. Overall, the data show that prosecutions are down 31.3 percent from the level of 8,108 reported in 2008 and down 40.8 percent from the level of 9,412 reported in 1998.
