Former Dixon comptroller Rita Crundwell pleaded not guilty Wednesday to allegations she stole more than $53 million from the town.

Crundwell appeared in a Lee County court Wednesday afternoon. She faces state and federal charges.

Crundwell allegedly used the money to pay for her lavish lifestyle.

Earlier this month, a number of horses seized from Crundwell were sold at auction, bringing in more than $7 million. That money will go to the town if she is convicted.
