December 04, 1997|By Caitlin Francke | Caitlin Francke,SUN STAFF

The Howard County state's attorney's office has hired an investigator to aid attorneys prosecuting white-collar crimes.

State's Attorney Marna McLendon announced this week that Francis W. Curran, a veteran investigator for the federal government, will fill the slot.

Curran is deputy assistant inspector general for investigations assigned to the Federal Emergency Management Agency through the Office of Inspector General.

He has worked for 27 years with the Internal Revenue Service, Department of Treasury and NASA, as well as FEMA.

Curran will be responsible for investigating complex white-collar crimes that often involve money-tracing issues and helping prosecutors in trial preparation.

"Mr. Curran's years of experience, knowledge and background will enhance the office's abilities in prosecution," McLendon said in a statement.
