Dixon – The lawyer for former Comptroller Rita Crundwell may ask the state to drop its case against her even though she admitted to stealing $53 million from the city.
Crundwell faces 60 counts of theft in Lee County. She’s supposed to appear in court for those charges tomorrow. But, her lawyer asked for more time so the judge could consider dropping them.
He didn’t elaborate as to why.
Crundwell did plead guilty though to a federal charge against her. She’ll be sentenced for that in February.
