U.S. Marshals Service Says Selling Crundwell's Assets Was Not All "Smooth Sailing"
Federal marshals have now liquidated all of the known assets of Rita Crundwell, the former Dixon comptroller who admitted to embezzling nearly $53 million from the city.
Last week, marshals sold Crundwell’s final three assets, including two vehicles and a trailer. That sale brought in about $36,000.
Crundwell was sentenced in February to 19.5 years in federal prison.
Teachers in Dixon will head back to class. The school board and teacher's union reached agreement on a four-year contract early Wednesday morning. Classes will resume Wednesday and students will begin standardized testing by the end of this week.
