Claude Heffron, Fellow at the Justice Gary S. Stein Center for Public Interest at Pashman Stein Walder Hayden P.C., was quoted in an NYU Law article titled, “Civil Rights in the Criminal Legal System Clinic Helps Man Leave Prison After 51 Years.” The article discusses NYU Law’s Civil Rights in the Criminal Legal System Clinic, which was able to successfully obtain release on parole for Paul Williams Jr., a schizophrenic man who was imprisoned for 51 years.

Claude Heffron, the attorney who connected NYU’s Civil Rights clinic with Mr. Williams’ case and helped prepare him for his successful hearing, said, “It’s heartbreaking for anyone to be in prison this long, especially Mr. Williams, who was not the shooter. When people exercise their right to a trial, as Mr. Williams did, they often face increased punishment. It’s an injustice.”
