Correction for September 24 

George Jackson.

There were several errors in our characterization of the facts surrounding George Jackson's incarceration in our August 27 crime column (Apprehension, "Martyrs, Martyrs Everywhere"). Jackson was accused of murder but never convicted. Only one heavily armed person — not several, as we stated — broke into the Marin County Courthouse in 1970 to demand the release of Jackson and other prisoners. And Berkeley lawyer Fay Stender was shot by an admirer of Jackson and not an associate, as we indicated.
