Paul Shechtman writes: On June 22, 1964, 50 years ago Sunday, the U.S. Supreme Court decided 'Jackson v. Denno', in which it reversed the conviction of Nathan Jackson for murdering a New York City police officer. For thousands of New York defendants, Jackson has had a lasting effect: It spawned Huntley hearings, which are now a staple of our criminal justice system.
