EICC/SCC – All the Queens Horses
May 20 @ 11:30 am - 2:00 pm
The story of how Rita Crundwell scammed the city of Dixon, Illinois. The film that will be shown reveals the riveting story of how a pillar of the community could callously execute a scam of incredible magnitude. As the appointed controller and treasurer of Dixon, Illinois, from 1983 to 2012, Rita Crundwell embezzled $53.7 million from the city to support her championship American Quarter Horse breeding operation and to live extravagantly.
Crundwell was arrested on April 17, 2012 when she arrived for work. On November 14, 2012, she pleaded guilty to a single count of wire fraud. Additional charges were made and she was sentenced on February 14, 2013 to 19 and a half years at the Federal Institution in Pekin, Illinois. With good conduct time deductions, her release date was listed as October 20, 2029 as of February 2020. The film will illustrate how she was caught, how the city of Dixon is attempting to rebuild and recover, and how it could happen anywhere.
