Attorney challenges Hocking County prosecutor in primary
(WOUB) - Hocking County prosecutor Larry Beal has a challenger in the March 4 primary.

Laurelville attorney Laina Fetherolf Jordan has filed to run against Beal in the Democratic primary.

She is a lifelong resident of southeast Ohio and has three years experience as an attorney, mostly in private practice in Logan.

Beal has served three terms as the Hocking County prosecutor.

Prior to that, he worked as the Logan city law director for ten years.

But the incumbent has come under fire recently, including a lawsuit seeking to remove him from office.

The suit, filed by attorney Will Kernen, was dropped in September.

Fetherolf Jordan says the time seemed right for her to run.

Pauline O'Neill of Logan is running unopposed in the Republican primary.
