Lee County officials drop theft charges against Crundwell

Lee County prosecutors have decided not to try former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell on state theft charges. Crundwell is already facing a federal prison sentence of nearly twenty years for embezzling nearly 54-million-dollars over 20 years. Lee County State's Attorney Anna Sacco-Miller says the cost of prosecuting Crundwell wouldn't be justified since it's unlikely she would be given additional prison time. The decision means that 60 counts of felony theft against Crundwell are being dropped. She pleaded guilty to stealing the money from the small community and using it to pay for her lavish lifestyle and horse-breeding operation.
