The most recent incidents took place on August 19, September 6, and September 14, according to reports. Among other charges in the three incidents including robbery, carjacking, kidnapping, and assault with a dangerous weapon, Currington is charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a weapon, three counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct involving a weapon, and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

In all three incidents, Currington allegedly attacked women who were alone near their vehicles in the area of Hamilton Street and Cass. At the time of news reports, how police linked Currington to the attacks was not revealed. Saginaw County District Judge A.T. Frank entered a plea of not guilty on the defendant’s behalf.

Considering his criminal history and the fact that Currington was imprisoned for almost 30 years for rape, it is very likely he will spend the rest of his life behind bars if found guilty of the recent sexual assaults. In addition, carjacking and kidnapping are extremely serious crimes which may result in a life sentence.
