Dixon: Continue state charges against Crundwell
The city of Dixon wants the state to move forward with charges against former Comptroller Rita Crundwell.
Crundwell was sentenced last week to more than 19 years in federal prison after pleading guilty to embezzling $53 million from the northern Illinois city.
WNIJ Radio (http://bit.ly/Y9BnhL ) reports that state prosecutors asked city officials after her sentencing for input on the future of their case against Crundwell.
Dixon Mayor Jim Burke says they're in favor of seeing Crundwell back in court. The Dixon City Council has expressed a similar view about the state's case.
Crundwell has pleaded not guilty to 60 counts of felony theft in Lee County. If she's convicted, that sentence would run concurrent to the federal sentence.
