Letter to Pat Lykos 31


Middle of the month, time to write Pat Lykos! Please join me in this; one letter from me means nothing, but a letter from each of us will let the D.A.'s office know that we're here, we're growing, and we want justice.

The Honorable Patricia Lykos
1201 Franklin St
Houston, TX
77002


Ma'am,

I'm writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, #908426.

I was encouraged to see that earlier this month George Rodriguez, a man recently exonerated by your office, settled with the city for about 3 million dollars in return for the 17 years he was wrongfully incarcerated. The article I read online mentioned that he had a previous felony conviction, which came up repeatedly in the comments. Many could not believe that the city would free a man, much less pay him for a wrongful conviction when he had been convicted of a felony previously. 
 
We're Americans, and we like our good guys to be as pure as the driven snow, and our bad guys to have souls as black as the pit of hell. It's difficult for the public to desire for justice for someone who doesn't fit the cookie-cutter mold of innocence.

As you may know, Coy himself does not fit into that mold. He has a  past which some have used to justify his continued incarceration; they feel that the end (his incarceration) justifies the means (his dubious trial), and don't care to look into it any further. However, you were willing to take steps to verify Mr. Rodriguez's innocence, even though you were not obligated to. You understood that imprisoning a man on false evidence did not make the citizens of Texas any safer, but rather threatened the liberty of us all. You cleared the way for him to receive compensation for the years of his life that were stolen for him, despite his past.

When you requested full exoneration for him, you stated “...we acted on the most important obligation of all – to see that the truth emerges, and that justice is done.”

I am asking you to do the same for Carlos Coy; help us find the truth, and ensure that justice is done.



Me, my address, blah blah blah.

Hey Incandensio has Pat Lykos ever respond to one of these letter?

Incandesio said...

Nope; I've heard back from the post conviction review unit and Jim Leitner, the former 1st ADA, though.

At this point it's more about letting her know there are a lot of people concerned about this...If/when they finally do start looking into the case, I don't expect to hear back personally anyway.

His address is:

He tries to write back, but he's working on The S.O.N. right now so it might take awhile.

No problem! Last I heard he's doing well; he can't record an interview until he gets out of AdSeg (solitary).

Mrs Icandesio I think the fact that you are willing to help Carlos Coy is very classy of you. Its good to know that someone with your intelligence has a passion for his case and for justice. I would assume that it would be good if we can write this Linda Lycos a lettet similar to yours? That will be a challenge that im willing to take on behalf of Mr Carlos Coy. Free SPM
