Brazen thefts end in prison countdown
For two decades, Rita Crundwell lived a very good life while living a lie. Now, for stealing more than $53 million from taxpayers, the former Dixon city comptroller faces many years behind prison bars. She earned them.
Rita Crundwell’s brazen thievery of millions of tax dollars ended April 17. That’s when FBI agents arrested the former Dixon comptroller for looting the city treasury.
Crundwell’s pretense of innocence ended Wednesday. That’s when she pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud; she also admitted to stealing an astounding $53,740,394 from Dixon city coffers.
Crundwell’s freedom will end Feb. 14. That’s when she will be sentenced in Rockford federal court.
