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.
