Our view: Lessons from Dixon theft
Rita Crundwell’s brazen thievery of millions of tax dollars ended April 17. That’s when FBI agents arrested the former comptroller for the north-central Illinois city of Dixon for looting the town’s treasury.
Crundwell’s pretense of innocence ended last week. That’s when she pleaded guilty to one count of federal wire fraud; she also admitted to stealing an astounding $53,740,394 from Dixon city coffers.
Crundwell’s freedom will end Feb. 14. That’s when she will be sentenced in Rockford federal court.
