The U.S. Marshals Service has liquidated nearly all of the assets of Rita Crundwell, the former Dixon comptroller who admitted embezzling vast sums from the city. One of the final sales will be her personal jewelry collection. The jewelry sale, scheduled Feb. 23 in Texas, will be simulcast to reach a wider audience.
When all is said and done, the city of Dixon will only recoup a fraction of the $53 million taken from the city's coffers over the last two decades.
