Crundwell gets more time to make court filing on retirement money


DIXON, Illinois — Former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell, who was convicted of stealing nearly $54 million from the northern Illinois city, will get an extra month to make a court filing regarding her retirement funds.

The (Dixon) Telegraph reports ( that a federal judge extended Crundwell's deadline from Nov. 5 to Dec. 5. Crundwell is preparing her response to prosecutors' request that she forfeit the retirement money. She asked the judge for more time. She is representing herself after the judge previously denied her request for a court-appointed attorney.

The retirement funds total about $90,500. They're held by Nationwide Retirement Solutions and Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund.

Prosecutors have until Dec. 19 if they want to file a reply to Crundwell's brief.

Crundwell pleaded guilty and is serving nearly 20 years in prison.
