Former Dixon comptroller doesn't plan to appeal prison sentence

Posted: Updated:
A convicted former Lee County bookkeeper won't try to reduce her 20-year prison sentence.

Rita Crundwell, the comptroller who stole $54 million from the City of Dixon isn't going after appeal options.  For now, her lawyer won't push for the U.S. 7th Circuit Court of Appeals or the U.S. Supreme Court to hear her case.  Crundwell used the money she stole over the course of two decades to live lavishly and build a major horse-breeding operation.
