WATCH LIVE: Carly Rousso to be sentenced in deadly “huffing” case

State charges dropped against ex-Dixon comptroller Crundwell

The state dismisses 60-counts of felony theft against former Dixon comptroller, Rita Crundwell.

Crundwell already pleaded guilty in federal court to stealing nearly $54-million in public money.

In February, she was sentenced to nearly 20-years in prison.

Prosecutors say the cost of trail combined with the fact that even if Crundwell were found guilty on the state charges he would not serve any additional jail time.

She spent the money on a lavish lifestyle and her horse breeding farm.

    "Prosecutors say the cost of trail combined with the fact that even if Crundwell were found guilty on the state charges he would not serve any additional jail time."

    I am so tired of these mispellings!!! This is a news website! It irritates me. Trial is mispelled. The Dixon comptroller was a female, not a male. It should say "she would not serve any additional jail time". Get it together!!!

    Who writes these stories, a sixth grader? WGN should be ashamed with all of the poor grammar and spelling that occurs on a regular basis. Why don't you get an editor to read this dribble before you post it….or at least use a spell check.

    I think the miss leading grammar and the fact that he is a she. Is that SHE padded the pockets of SO MANY of the fine Representatives of the state,county,and town, That the State had to drop the 60 counts in order to protect all those that have profited from this multimillion dollar shame. Lavish lifestyle for all involved. Watch your back what aJOKE!!!!!!!!
