Longtime Orange County treasurer-tax collector Robert Citron who was at the helm when the county declared Chapter 9 bankruptcy in 1994 died from a heart attack on Wednesday, his widow told NBC4.

He was 87.

At age 71, Citron spent a year in jail and was fined $100,000 after being convicted of diverting money from school districts to the county and keeping two sets of books, according to the Orange County Register.

Citron was born in Los Angeles on April 14, 1925.
