U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says federal prosecutors collected about $12.1 million in criminal and civil legal actions last year.

Grissom says in a news release that $6.1 million of the total came from criminal cases and $6 million from civil actions.

His office also worked with other U.S. attorney’s offices in other states and the Justice Department to collect an additional $2.8 million in cases pursued jointly in civil actions.

Among the Kansas collections were environmental violation penalties of $1.7 million from Coffeyville Resources Refining and Marketing and $1.6 million from Ash Grove Cement. More than $853,000 came from Hutchinson Regional Medical Center in a settlement over allegations of false Medicare claims.
