The Northern District of California recovered $346,983,000.30 in civil and criminal cases during fiscal year 2011, according to U.S. Attorney Melinda Haag. Of that amount, $309,685,106.50 was collected in criminal actions and $37,297,893.80 was collected in civil actions, Haag’s office reported.

Nationwide, the U.S. Attorneys’ offices collected $6.5 billion in criminal and civil actions during fiscal year 2011, surpassing $6 billion for the second consecutive year.

The $6.5 billion represents more than three times the appropriated budget of the combined 94 offices for fiscal year 2011.

“During this time of economic recovery, these collections are more important than ever,” U.S. Attorney Haag said. “The hard work of the attorneys and staff has helped return millions of dollars to the U.S. treasury and victims of crimes, while ensuring that the criminals who wrongfully took the funds were put behind bars.”

As my parents get older, these stories bother me more. Reading the story above, I know that dealing with those with dementia and Alzheimer’s is extremely difficult, but it would be a last resort for me to do that. In reading this article, even the Office of the State Advocate in Wisconsin found after an 18 month investigation, that the nursing home mislead the family in telling them that their mother could stay when she ran out of money and when she qualified for Medicaid. It will be interesting to see if the nursing home settles this one or takes it to trial.
