The City of Dixon will continue to pursue state charges against its former comptroller, after she was sentenced to 235 months in prison on a federal wire fraud charge.
Rita Crundwell was sentenced in federal court Friday. Lee County State's Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller said afterward she would meet with Dixon leaders to discuss if the city should move forward with the 60 counts of theft they have against Crundwell.
City leaders, including Mayor James Burke, have expressed their desire to see the woman who stole over $53 million from the city back in court.
Crundwell has pleaded not guilty to the state charges. If she's found guilty, her sentence would be concurrent to her federal sentence.
