Lawyers for the former Dixon, Ill., comptroller, Rita's Crundwell are appealing her federal sentence as well as asking that dozens of state charges be dismissed.

The 60-year old was sentenced February 14, 2013, to nearly 20 years in prison for one count of wire fraud after she admitted to stealing $53 million from taxpayers while she was in charge of the city's finances.

Her lawyers say the federal wire fraud charge and the 60 counts of felony theft she faces in Lee County have commonalities, which could be double jeopardy.

Lawyers will be in court Monday, March 4, 2013. Crundwell is expected to be appearing via video conference.

A date will be set to consider the motion to dismiss.

Crundwell has pleaded not guilty to the state charges.
