Legislation inspired by the Rita Crundwell scandal could soon see activity in the Illinois Senate. Crundwell is the former Dixon comptroller who is serving a federal prison sentence for stealing millions of dollars from the city.
It’s been one year since federal authorities announced the arrest of Rita Crundwell. The former Dixon comptroller is serving out a prison sentence after she admitted to stealing millions of dollars from the city. One year later, this situation is still being discussed by policy leaders in Illinois.
Dixon's former comptroller was back in court Monday. Rita Crundwell's attorney wants a judge to dismiss state charges against his client, who was sentenced last month to more than 19-years in federal prison.
