I’m writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, #908426.
I have been following the case of Brian Banks recently; his story is heartbreaking- ten years under the cloud of a wrongful conviction before being exonerated.
His case has been widely reported, and the publicity generated by it has given him the chance to follow his dreams and try out for several professional football teams; however, as his recent try-out for the Seahawks made clear, there is no way to return him to the life that was stolen. He can build on his new freedom, but he can’t recover lost opportunities.
Carlos Coy’s was imprisoned on similar evidence; no DNA, nothing physical to link him to the supposed assault; only testimony, which was confused and weak at best. The child said she could not remember clearly, once even suggesting that she had dreamed the whole thing. The state’s experts seemed unaware that she had been prescribed anti-depressants (for symptoms that sound very similar to PTSD) months before she accused Coy.
I believe that the misbehavior in Carlos Coy’s case will eventually come to light, and I hope that, with your help, it can be sooner than later. Please, review it yourself or assign an investigator to look through it. Whether you believe Coy is innocent or guilty, justice was not served in his trial.
Me, my address, blah blah blah.
All of you that have been sending these in with me, thank you so much. For those of you that have yet to do so, why not start this week?
