In a letter that Morris and his wife submitted last month to Sedgwick County District Judge Ben Burgess, Morris defends Etheredge, blasts Kansas securities investigators and calls his $100,000 loan to the amusement park an entrepreneurial loan among friends.
Etheredge remains in the Sedgwick County Jail on $1 million bond. The charges stem from his efforts to raise private investment capital from early 2005 to early 2007 for his struggling theme park.
