A federal judge ruled on Wednesday, May 30, 2012, several properties and a luxury motor home belonging to the former Dixon comptroller can be sold. Crundwell has pleaded not guilty to charges alleging she stole more than $53 million from the small northern Illinois city to pay for a lavish lifestyle and create a horse-breeding operation. A motion was granted to sell four properties in Illinois, one property in Florida and a $2.1 million motor home. (AP Photo/Charles Rex Arbogast, File)

Former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell was released from prison 11 years short of her sentence. Dixon City Manager Danny Langloss joins John Williams to talk about that and Kelly Richmond Pope, producer of “All the Queen’s Horses”, joins John to explain what is next for Crundwell.
