Sentence fits the crime; bravo!
A major milestone in the prosecution of Dixon’s former comptroller has been reached. Her nearly 20-year prison sentence fits the crime. Other prosecution, restitution, and prevention milestones lie ahead.
Rita Crundwell’s apology to the city of Dixon, her family, and friends was too little, too late, to alter her fate.
On Thursday, federal Judge Philip Reinhard sentenced Crundwell to 19 years, 7 months in a federal prison for committing wire fraud as she stole $53.7 million from Dixon city accounts between 1991 and 2012.
That sentence is 98 percent of the maximum 20 years that the judge could have imposed.
