DIXON, Ill. -- The U.S. Marshals Service says it will raise more than $3 million from the sale of three properties belonging to disgraced former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell.

U.S. Marshals said in a Wednesday news release that it was contracts totaling more than $3 million on properties in Lee County. Crundwell pleaded guilty in November to federal charges alleging she stole more than $53 million from the city of Dixon during her time as comptroller. Authorities say she used the money to fund a lavish lifestyle and horse ranch.
