SCRANTON –U.S. Attorney Gerard M. Karam today issued the 2022 Annual Report for the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Middle District of Pennsylvania.

“As public servants, we seek to provide transparency and accountability by publicly reporting on our work and accomplishments,” said U.S. Attorney Karam. “The U.S. Attorney’s Office, along with our partner agencies, had many achievements in 2022.” 

The accomplishments summarized in this report are due to the hard work of our 92 dedicated professionals.  In 2022, Assistant United States Attorneys prosecuted approximately 385 criminal cases involving 479 defendants, and our Civil Division handled over 740 cases representing the interests of the federal government, including obtaining over $30 million in criminal and civil actions. We continued to participate in numerous community outreach programs designed to educate the public and reduce recidivism, violent crimes, and opioid dependence. 

“It’s an honor to work with the members of this office and with our federal, state, and local law enforcement partners to seek justice and to improve the safety and quality of life for the people of the Middle District of Pennsylvania,” said U.S. Attorney Karam.
