Judge Easterbrook's zinger in sentencing case

Here's how the opinion starts:

In 2011 a Commissioner of Dixon, Illinois, the childhood home of President Reagan, lauded Rita Crundwell, the City’s Comptroller since 1983, because “she looks after every tax dollar as if it were her own.” How right he was. The next year Crundwell pleaded guilty to embezzling approximately $53 million from the City between 1990 and 2012.

Hat tip: How Appealing.
