It’s the middle of June, time for another letter to Pat Lykos. I’d like to bring her attention to some of the new facts that have been revealed in SPM’s letter. Please, write to the District Attorney this month! Mail out a copy of this letter, write one of your own, or print out one of the downloadable flyers on the sidebar and send that.
Although letters from those of you in Houston are needed, letters from anywhere in the world will help. They don't need to be long, or grammatically perfect, they just need to be sent. Let the D.A.'s office know that our eyes are on them, and we want to see justice.
District Attorney Patricia Lykos
1201 Franklin St
I’m writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, case #908426.
As we become more familiar with the transcripts in this case, I find myself continually surprised at how the conviction appears to have been crafted with no regard to justice. The judge attempted to exclude evidence, a movie that the child had seen, that portrayed the same sexual act Coy was accused of performing on her.
Although she had not mentioned seeing the movie in court, the prosecutors were told by the judge to ask her if she had seen it; they contacted the defense attorney and said she had. In court later, apparently after discovering what was in the movie, the judge decided not to admit it. The prosecutors claimed that the child’s mother told them she had not seen the movie, only the first five minutes. This was later proved false in court, in front of the judge, but not the jury.
Ma’am, this does not appear to be the pursuit of justice, but of expediency. Please, take a look at the trial transcript, Volumes 14 & 15, and see what you think. I am committed to gathering and spreading information about this trial, which I hope will eventually lead to a new trial for Mr. Coy. I do this because I sincerely his first was a miscarriage of justice. Please help us; look into this case, and see if it was motivated by a desire to find the truth, or to gain a conviction.
Me, my address, blah blah blah.
