CHICAGO (AP) -- Law enforcement authorities are selling the first of a large group of assets seized from a former city comptroller in northern Illinois who is accused of stealing millions in public funds.
The U.S. Marshals Service said Friday it is accepting bids on a luxury motor home that belonged to Rita Crundwell.
The 59-year-old Dixon resident is accused of misappropriating more than $53 million since 1990 to help support a lavish lifestyle and her nationally renowned horse breeding operation.
She has pleaded not guilty to wire fraud.
Bidding for the 2009 Liberty Coach Motor Home starts at $1 million and continues until Aug. 1.
Authorities have seized other assets, including 400 horses.
If Crundwell is found guilty, net proceeds from the sales will go toward restitution for the city of Dixon.
