Audit: Justice Department Overstates Terrorism Conviction Statistics

The Justice Department grossly overstated the number of terrorism convictions and made other inaccuracies because of shoddy record keeping, a federal audit has found, the Washington Post reports.

Justice Department Inspector General Michael E. Horowitz concluded in a report that the federal agency, which has 93 U.S. attorneys’ offices, over-reported the number of defendants who had been found guilty of terrorism.

The number was overstated by 13% in 2009 and 26% in 2010, the Post wrote.

The investigation found other significant errors in record keeping, according to the Post.
