Letter to Pat Lykos 7

The DA’s office is under investigation by a Grand Jury RIGHT NOW. I’ll post more about that next week; if you haven’t been following the story, here’s the basics. The Blood Alcohol Testing vans (BAT vans) have been giving wrong results for years and the DA’s office not only covered it up, but prosecuted cases with this faulty evidence

Lykos is flying in from Hawaii to deal with this cluster fuck; if you have ever considered writing a letter, please write one today. While everything is in upheaval, she might be willing to re-consider SPM’s case just to take a little heat off her own administration. Even if it’s only a few lines, let her know we’re paying attention.

To the Honorable Pat Lykos
1201 Franklin Street, Suite 600
Houston, Texas 77002-1923


I’m writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, TDCJ# 01110642.
I have been following the 185th Grand Jury case with interest. Although it’s not exactly easy to understand what’s going on, I believe that prosecutors from your office may be in trouble for using false evidence to pursue DWI convictions, and that they have gone against a judges’ order to obtain secret transcripts from the Grand Jury proceedings.

Unfortunately, it is easy for us to assume the worst about the intentions of the DA’s office. We have seen time and time again aggressive, questionable prosecution methods used to convict innocent men. The thought of something so universal and common as a breathalyzer test resulting in a wrongful conviction is horrifying. People who may not be able to imagine themselves on trial for murder or rape, can certainly see themselves as the victim of faulty equipment.

Now would be a wonderful time to show the public that the DA’s office is not afraid to revisit previous convictions, not afraid to release those imprisoned by lies. Please, consider reviewing Coy vs. Texas, and recommending a new trial for a man who was convicted on testimony that was shaky, at best.

Me, my address, blah blah blah

I can’t stress this enough, people; NOW is the time to write.
