The case for clearing the name of Alexander McClay Williams
The fight for justice for Alexander McClay Williams is not over - not by a long shot.
A few months ago, a Delaware County judge expunged the record of Williams, who was convicted in the murder of a matron at Glen Mills Schools more than eight decades ago. In the matter of about a year, Williams was arrested, tried, convicted and executed, thus becoming an infamous note in Pennsylvania history - the youngest Keystone State resident ever executed.
That rush to judgment becomes more shameful the more you learn about the case.
Longtime Delco educator Sam Lemon has produced a book on the case, and teamed with local attorney Robert Keller to make the case for clearing McClay Williams' name.
