WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — Prosecutors say they have collected $15.8 million in criminal and civil cases filed in federal courts in Kansas.

U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom said Thursday in a news release the amount his office has recovered for the federal treasurer and for crime victims in fiscal 2012 was up by one-third.

He says that in this time of economic recovery, the collections are more important than ever. Criminal actions accounted for $2.1 million in collections, while civil cases brought in $13.7 million.

That compares with the previous year in which the District of Kansas collected $11.8 million in both criminal and civil actions.

Nationwide, the $13.1 billion collected by U.S. attorney's offices across the country more than doubled the previous fiscal year's collections.
