ATLANTA - An Alabama grand jury Monday indicted Gov. Guy Hunt on 13 felony counts that include theft allegations, but rating agency officials said yesterday that they do not foresee the charges affecting the state's double-A ratings.

In addition to the theft counts, which charge that Hunt illegally diverted $200,000 from his 1987 inauguration for his own use, the Montgomery County grand jury also charged the governor with conspiracy, receiving stolen goods, and ethics violations. Hunt's arraignment has been set for Jan. 20.
