Former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell has been moved to the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago after she stole 54 million dollars from the city during a 20-year period.
The 60-year old Crundwell was moved to the facility last week from the Boone County Jail in Belvidere. She was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for putting public money into secret bank accounts to fund her horse breeding business and lavish lifestyle.
Crundwell will be assigned a permanent prison in the near future. Her release date is scheduled for March 5th, 2030.
