Former Dixon Comptroller Fights To Keep Pension

September 24, 2014

(Dixon, IL)  --  The former city comptroller of Dixon is trying to hang onto her pension, despite her conviction for stealing nearly 54-million-dollars from the town when she handled its checkbook.  Rita Crundwell's attorneys have told a federal judge that the 90-thousand-dollars in her pension funds shouldn't be taken to satisfy her restitution payments.  The city has gotten back nine-million-dollars from the sale of Crundwell's property and 30-million-dollars in a settlement with a bank that Crundwell worked with.  Crundwell still owes more than 44-million-dollars in restitution.
