Letter to Pat Lykos 25

It's the middle of August, so please join me in sending a letter to the District Attorney. You can send her a copy of this one, write your own, or send her one of the downloadable flyers to your right. We need to keep this case in front of her, and I hope you'll join me in doing that.

District Attorney Patricia Lykos
1201 Franklin St
Houston, TX

I’m writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, #908426.
In past letters, I’ve brought to your attention problems with his trial; I’ve mentioned cases similar to Coy’s that have now been overturned. I’ve highlighted some ethical issues that became apparent after your predecessor, Chuck Rosenthal, left office.

Today I’d like to speak with you about the un-prosecuted indictments against Carlos Coy. There were between four and eight, depending on the source. The alleged victims in these cases were brought in to testify against Coy during the sentencing phase, although according to newspaper stories at the time the prosecution tried to have their testimony admitted earlier.

 What was it about these cases prevented the state from taking them to trial? Although they were treated as solid evidence of his guilt during the trial, none of them were ever prosecuted; why then were they used? Several attempts to bring these allegations to civil trial failed, which makes me wonder if they were supported by any evidence, at all.

It would not have been out of character for the D.A.'s office, at that time, to obtain indictments simply to allow these women to speak at the trial. As you know, the number of no-bills increased dramatically after you took office, which I believe was because you changed the focus of the office back to obtaining justice, not just racking up convictions. Please, take a look at these cases and consider whether they were put before the grand jury in good faith.

Me, my address, blah blah blah.

Yes, that account is run through Dope House's social media guy. SPM sends them through the mail, and I believe there'll be a new one every day.

Anon 10:45.What makes you so sure that he is guilty?

Incandesio said...

I support a retrial for Carlos COy because the first one was unjust. As far as his guilt or innocence in this case, the only people that know for sure are Coy and the child; the State sure as hell didn't prove anything.

A fair retrial is a must. To much "confusion" and not enough hard evidence. What happened to innocent till proven guilty? Where is the proof?

*** good job Incandesio keep it up****
