Crundwell pleads not guilty
Dixon ex-comptroller Rita Crundwell plead not guilty Wednesday to 60 counts of theft in Lee County.
She is scheduled to appear in court again for a pre-trail hearing Dec. 19 at 1:30 p.m. at the courthouse.
Crundwell did not waive the right to a jury trial. Circuit Judge Ronald Jacobson said he has not made a determination yet on whether Crundwell could face consecutive or concurrent sentences.
