Re: Sam Currin the DA???

The Granville D.A. is Samuel B. Currin III; the former U.S. attorney and current inmate was Samuel Thomas Currin.

Sam Currin the DA???

The District Attorney of Granville, Vance, Warren, and Franklin Counties is named Sam Currin. Is this a son, relative, or just a coincidence? I am guessing it is his son but I don't know. RTB can you find out?
