Time to clear the name of Alexander McClay Williams

Justice delayed is justice denied.

That may be the case, but even denied, justice is sweet for the friends, family and supporters of Alexander McClay Williams.

In what can only be described as a rush to judgment, the Delaware County teen was arrested, tried and convicted eight decades ago in the murder of a matron at Glen Mills School.

He quickly became the youngest person in Pennsylvania ever executed.

Eighty-six years later, his arrest record has been expunged, thanks to the tireless work of his supporters.

There remains work to do.

Alexander McClay Williams' record now has been cleared.

Now it's time to clear his name as well.

You can read about it on today's editorial page.
