Letter to Pat Lykos 4

Time for another letter to DA Pat Lykos. Please, feel free to change it around a little and send it, or write your own; a big part of this campaign for a fair trial is keeping Coy’s name in front of those in power. If you don’t feel like sending a letter, print out one of those forms to your right and send it to the address below. Let Pat Lykos know that we’re here and we demand justice!

The Honorable Pat Lykos

Madame District Attorney,

I’m writing to you today about the case of Carlos Coy, TDCJ #01110642.
While reading about the newly-restored & re-dedicated Houston courthouse, I was absolutely floored by how beautiful it is. How amazing that something so abused and unappreciated could be so spectacular once proper attention is paid to it.

Similarly abused and unappreciated was the citizen’s trust in the courts under DA Chuck Rosenthal. As you know, abuses of power were common and innocent men were sent to prison on false evidence, or because exculpatory evidence was withheld.

With a little attention and hard work, you have begun restoring citizen’s faith in the judicial system. Please, extend some of that to the case of Carlos Coy. As far as we know there is no DNA evidence involved in his case, so a review would not tax the already stretched resources of the Houston Crime Lab.

At least a comparison of the discovery file with the medical & police reports would be much appreciated; rumors of undisclosed evidence that might have benefited Coy’s case are persistent. A case like this will generate a great deal of publicity when it is finally made public, wouldn’t it be better for the Houston DA to proactively deal with it?

Please, help us get the ball rolling. Review Carlos Coy’s case, examine the evidence, and tell us what you think about it.

Me, my address, blah blah blah.
