Letter to Pat Lykos 2

Here's my letter to the District Attorney. Please feel free to use this as a base for your own letter. Change a few lines and send it off! The more evidence of wide-spread wrongdoing we uncover, the more we make public the crazy shit that went on under Chuck Rosenthal, the better Coy's chances of getting a new trial.

Madam District Attorney,
I'm writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, TDCJ #01110642.
He was convicted in 2002, and sentenced to 45 years in prison for
aggravated sexual assault of a child.

At his trial, prosecutors relied only on the testimony of his accusers, including Maryvel Ramirez, who may have perjured herself by claiming that she had no intention of filing a civil case against Mr. Coy, and her daughter, who stated in court that the assault may have been a bad dream. According to the Innocence Project of New York, 75% of convictions overturned were caused by victim misidentification.

The investigator testified that she 'felt' that Carlos Coy was
dangerous, and intended to rape his own daughter. This testimony,
offered with no proof other than this woman's 'feelings' was allowed,
even encouraged. A therapist from the Children's Assessment Center
was declared an expert on 'coaching' by the judge, with no proof or
credentials offered to support this claim.

Coy has appealed numerous times, gathering evidence to support his case, but each time his appeals have been rejected. You, more than most people, understand the breathtaking scope of the corruption and malfeasance that became common during Chuck Rosenthal's term as DA. You have taken heroic measures to ensure that those wrongfully convicted have a chance of winning back their stolen freedom.

Please, help another innocent man; review Carlos Coy's case, take a look at his appeals. Brady violations, Batson violations, DNA that is hidden or simply allowed to remain untested for years, these were common practices under your predecessor. Coy, his family, and all his fans deserve to know the true circumstances of his conviction.

Thank you for your time,
Me, my address, blah blah blah.

Don't forget to put your address on the envelope, the Post Office won't deliver the letter without it.

A lot of people are waiting for Carlos Coy to get out on parole, but we cannot count on that ever happening. If he does not confess to what they accuse him of, and go through sex-offender therapy, they will never give him parole. He has maintained his innocence since day one, and I believe he will continue to do so.
Please, help us get him a new trial before he has to make that choice.

Has anyone gotten back to you regarding the rape kit?

Incandesio said...

They did, and the official word is that there is not one. HPD made the decision to wait a week to ten days before pursuing this case.
