‘No reason to proceed’
DIXON – Citing a desire to save taxpayers about $300,000 on a “futile” trial, Lee County State’s Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller on Tuesday dismissed theft charges against Rita Crundwell.
The former Dixon comptroller had been charged with 60 counts of theft for stealing $11.3 million in city funds between Jan. 1, 2010, and April 17, 2012.
Sacco-Miller called further prosecution “futile” because it would not have meant more prison time for Crundwell or additional restitution to the city of Dixon.
