Fmr Dixon, IL Comptroller, Rita Crundwell, Sentenced to 19 1/2 Years In Prison

Today, District Judge Philip Reinhard sentenced former City of Dixon, IL Comptroller Rita Crundwell (60) to 19 1/2 years (235 months) in prison for diverting $53 million from city coffers to her own benefit ... one of those benefits was buying horses .... 400 of them at the time of her arrest.  The government had requested a prison term of over 20 years while Crundwell's attorney sought some leniency for her cooperation and age by asking for only 13 years prison.  Judge Reinhard could just not get over the amount of money involved and the length of time over which the crime was committed.
