DIXON, Ill. (AP) - A federal judge has ordered that about $37,000 of former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell’s assets be turned over to the city as restitution

Crundwell is serving a 20-year sentence for stealing nearly $54 million from the northern Illinois city. The (Dixon) Telegraph reports Monday (https://bit.ly/1waQoPz ) that U.S. District Judge Philip Reinhard last week made two turnover orders. One was for just more than $37,000 from the American Quarter Horse Association’s Incentive Fund Program.

The other was for a $2,000 personal loan that Crundwell made. The city already has received $1,600 of that money.

The money will be paid to the court and then transferred to the city.

As of Dec. 26 the city has received $9.3 million from Crundwell, who was ordered to pay about $54 million in restitution.
