(AP) Earl Haymon is finally gaining his freedom after spending 42 years in of them by mistake. The 68-year-old convict has been told that authorities at Fishkill correctional facility will parole him June 26, ending a campaign begun five months ago to rectify a judge's sentencing error. It was in 1932 that Haymon, then 26, came to Buffalo as a circus laborer. He was arrested in a fatal stabbing, was convicted of second- degree murder and appeared for sentencing before the late Judge Gerald Rowe of Erie County Court. Stephen Lamantia. Haymon's present lawyer, says Rowe decided to sentence Haymond to life in prison because Haymon had a prior felony conviction. Haymon's lawyer argued then that the sentence was too harsh, but the penalty was invoked nevertheless. Haymon filed an appeal soon after, but it was dismissed because he was too poor to pay legal costs. The case remained closed until five months ago when one of Haymon's cellmates. Hurd Harding, wrote a letter to the Erie County district attorney's office, the letter contended that under New York state law. Haymon could not be sentenced to life for City taken to court CALGARY (CP) A Calgary apartment owner is taking the City of Calgary to court for its three way split mill rale. Doug Henning. who runs an apartment management company, filed a notice of motion in the Alberta Supreme Court Thursday and city hall was notified Friday Tne case is to be heard before District Court Judge Clarence Yanosik June 17. Judge Yanosik was asked to quash the enabling city by laws which put the mill rate into effect last month. Dave Russell, Alberta's Municipal Affairs Minister, has called the split mil] rate illegal He said it contravenes the munirinaJ second-degree murder and should have spent no more than 20 years behind bars. The district attorney assigned Lamantia to look into the case and a resentencing hearing was held on March 5 Judge William Heffron changed Haymon's term to a minimum of 20 years, making him eligible for immediate parole. Haymon is not bitter about his experience and plans to re- turn to Buffalo when he is re- leased, Lamantia said. He de- scribed his client, now 68, as fragile, but mentally he's alert, kind of witty even." He said Haymon had spent recent years in a special unit at Fishkill for elderly and handicapped patients, and generally was treated "like a trustv." In Buffalo, he will have a chance to mix with the younger generation His home will be a high-rise tower at Buffalo State College, the temporary location of the Erie County Home and Infirmary Try Baton You UP TO 30-DAY TRIAL ON YOUR DOCTOR'S RECOMMENDATION MA!
