Dixon’s former comptroller, accused of stealing over $53 million from the city, was back in court Wednesday for a status hearing.
Rita Crundwell got an update on both her criminal case, in which she faces one count of wire fraud, and her civil case, regarding the sale of assets authorities say she purchased with stolen money.
Crundwell’s criminal case is not yet ready to be transferred to another judge. She will appear in court again on October 10 and her attorney has until then to file a pretrial motion.
Her horses will be auctioned off next month. Once her horses are sold, her property and assets on those properties will also be sold. Crundwell will appear in court regarding these matters on October 10 as well.
