Which U.S. Attorney recently prosecuted Walter Anderson?
Mr. Anderson's case was said to be the largest tax evasion case in history. Unfortunately, restitution was complicated by the fact that in plea documents, the U.S. Justice Dept. attorney use an incorrect statute and, consequently the Judge had no authority to order repayment.

It was a joint effort by:
Assistant Attorney General Eileen J. O’Connor, of the Justice Department’s Tax Division, Attorney Kenneth L. Wainstein of the District of Columbia, Mark W. Everson, Internal Revenue Service Commissioner; and Daniel J. Black, Deputy Chief Financial Officer for the District of Columbia’s Office of Tax and Revenue
(according to a Dept of Justice press release announcing the indictment and arrest)
U.S. prosecutor Karen Kelly
(at the sentencing hearing, according to Bloomberg.com)
As for getting restitution, I'm not sure where you got your information from, but according to news reports from various sources, Anderson pleaded guilty and recently was ordered $23 million in restitution and sentenced to nine years.Source(s): Department of Justice http://www.usdoj.gov/opa/pr/2005/February/05_tax_0...
