Correction History is not about a past over and done with, but a past still impacting the present. Case in point: the Motchan Story. Issues in it a quarter century ago are still with us as materials presented here show. Due to a high court ruling, the officer's convicted killer was not executed as first sentenced. He became eligible to apply for parole July 2000. The views expressed on the issues are those of their authors to whom NYCHS is grateful for granting its request for copies to post here.
