DIXON, Ill. -- Federal officials say they've sold the last of former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell's tangible assets.

Crundwell is serving a nearly 20-year prison sentence after admitting she stole nearly $54 million from the small northern Illinois city. The U.S. Marshals Service has been selling her assets to raise money for restitution.

The Telegraph in Dixon reports that the most recent and final asset sale was three vehicles, which raised $35,900. All together her assets brought it more than $10 million. That includes the sale of her homes, jewelry, furniture and horses.

Crundwell used the money over more than two decades to fund her lavish lifestyle and nationally known horse business. Her release date is March 5, 2030.
