A candidate for Douglas County commissioner is facing two charges of writing bad checks.

Steven Hensley, 20, was charged with a gross misdemeanor in McLeod County for writing an $800 check to a car dealership in Hutchinson last September that bounced for having insufficient funds.


Hensley pleaded guilty to the charge in April but failed to appear at his sentencing hearing on July 9 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
