Ex-Dixon Comptroller Serving Time In Minnesota Prison
CHICAGO (CBS) — The convicted former comptroller of Dixon, Ill., who stole tens of million of dollars in city money, has arrived at her final prison destination.
It’s a minimum security, all-female facility in Waseca, Minn., about 75 miles south of Minneapolis.
Crundwell admitted she stashed public money in a secret bank account for decades.
She used it to fund a lavish lifestyle and her renowned horse-breeding operation.
In February, a U.S. judge in Rockford sentenced the 60-year-old to nearly 20 years in prison.
Her projected release date is March 5, 2030.
Crundwell stayed at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Chicago for a few weeks during her transition to her permanent location in Minnesota.
