Crundwell files appeal
DIXON – Rita Crundwell’s attorney is asking a federal court of appeals to reconsider her prison sentence.
In documents filed Wednesday, attorney Paul Gaziano says the U.S. District Court in Rockford abused its discretion and did not give enough weight to Crundwell’s communication with authorities when she was sentenced.
The former Dixon comptroller was sentenced Feb. 14 to 19 years, 7 months for wire fraud in connection to her theft of nearly $54 million. It is widely regarded as the largest municipal embezzlement in U.S. history.
