Ex-Dixon comptroller Crundwell sentenced 235 months for $54M fraud

Former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell was sentenced today to 235 months in prison — about 19 1/2 years behind bars — for stealing nearly $54 million from the city.

A Federal Judge in Rockford also sentenced Crundwell to 3 years probation and ordered her to pay over $53 million in restitution.

The judge revoked her bond and ordered her to be taken into custody immediately, saying not only could she be a flight risk but that he feared there could be retaliation against her.
