Preliminary hearing begins for Ulysses man
Published 3/27/2010 in Local News

ULYSSES -- Carlos Moral, a Ulysses businessman charged with 29 felonies in Grant County, appeared in district court Friday for a preliminary hearing.
A former business associate of Moral's, his former tax preparer and two bank officials testified. Because of time constraints, a second full day for the hearing has been set for May 14.
The Kansas Attorney General's Office charged Moral in July 2009 with three counts of theft, three counts of making false information and 23 counts of giving a worthless check. The criminal complaint alleges that Moral, who started The Grant County Gazette in April 2006 in downtown Ulysses with his wife, Julie, stole $196,800 from Richard Dudley, who owns The Movies, a local theater about a block from the newspaper office.
From December 2006 through April 2008, Moral allegedly wrote 23 worthless checks to Dudley totaling $234,508, according to court documents. Two checks were written for $67,000 each to Richard Dudley from Moral in December 2006 and January 2007, court documents allege, while the remaining checks were written for amounts of $10,000 or less.
Kristy Turner, assistant manager of Bank of America, Liberal, testified Friday that Moral, acting as M&M Investors, had written numerous checks. She said for more than a month, the account in question had a negative balance. The account had been flagged and frozen, she said.
Darrell Cockrum, chairman of Johnson State Bank, also testified Friday that Moral had written numerous bad checks from October 2007 to November 2007, the largest in an amount of more than $18,000.
Cockrum said the account was revised in July 2008 to remove Moral's signature from the signer card on the account, and Julie Moral remained.
