HARRISBURG – Acting U.S. Attorney Bruce D. Brandler today issued the 2020 Annual Report for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

“I have reviewed the events of 2020 and am proud to report that our office, along with our law enforcement partners, had significant accomplishments last year despite the challenges presented by the Coronavirus Pandemic,” stated Acting U.S. Attorney Brandler.  “In 2020, we successfully prosecuted numerous individuals engaged in serious criminal activity, thereby improving the quality of life for the people of our District. We also successfully represented the interests of the federal government in civil litigation, including obtaining significant monetary recoveries on behalf of the taxpayer. Last, but not least, we participated in numerous community outreach programs designed to educate the public and reduce recidivism, violent crimes, and opioid dependence.” 

This report shows a highly effective and efficient operation. The accomplishments summarized in it are due to the hard work of numerous dedicated professionals, including former United States Attorney David J. Freed, who led the District with honor and distinction between 2017 and 2020. 

“I am proud to work alongside each member of the U.S. Attorney’s Office and with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to pursue justice and make our communities safer,” said Acting U.S. Attorney Brandler.  “I hope you find this Report informative and enlightening.”
