Gross faces charges of diverting more than $13,000 in CID tax revenue into his personal accounts.
An investigation by the Missouri State Highway Patrol alleges that Gross directed the Missouri State Department of Revenue stop making direct payments to the Big Spring CID fund and to mail paper checks directly to him. Other allegations are that Gross opened a new Big Spring Plaza CID bank account by forging signatures of two CID board members.
A pre-trial conference has been set for Monday, June 18 at 9 a.m. in Newton County Division I circuit court, Judge Timothy Perigo presiding.
