Attorney Cahill Will Face Unusual Task If Name D.A.
Corning, Dec 13, If Current predictions are fulfilled and Attorney
Michael H. Cahill becomes district attorney on January 1, he may be called
upon to prosecute the man for whom he secured appointment as Steuben County
WPA director.
Corning Judge Edwin S. Brown has denied Mr. Cahill's motion for dismissal
of a second degree grand larceny indictment against WPA Director Samuel
McRoberts. District Attorney George W. Pratt opposed the motion, but he
will not be in office if the case comes to trial after January 1, and the
prosecution must be handled by his successor, who, according to political
prognosticators, will be the present chairman of the Democratic County
Committee.
