The state case against former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell will be back in court in April.
A motion to dismiss state charges against Crundwell will be heard by Lee County Judge Ron Jacobson on April 1. Crundwell faces 60 charges of theft for stealing over $53 million from Dixon.
She was recently sentenced to 235 months in prison on a separate federal charge of wire fraud for the theft.
Paul Gaziano, Crundwell's attorney, is citing double jeopardy in his motion for dismissal. Lee County prosecutors are asking for more time to determine whether or not Crundwell should have state charges.
