Ulysses businessman Carlos Moral appeared in Grant County District Court Friday. The man who started the Grant County Gazette was charged with 29 felonies. The Kansas Attorney General's Office charged Moral in July with three counts of theft, three counts of making false information, and 23 counts of giving a worthless check. The criminal complaint alleges Moral stole 196,800 from the owner of a local theator Richard Dudley. A second full day for the hearing is set for May 14.
