Recap 1


Since we’ve been going for nearly two years and have picked up a lot of new readers in recent months, I want to take the first few posts of 2013 and go over everything from the beginning. Those of you that have been reading for a while, thanks for sticking with it; you already know most of this information, but you may find it interesting to re-read it.

 

For those of you just joining us, we’re going to talk about District Attorney Chuck Rosenthal, who eventually resigned after a lawsuit was filed requesting his removal. Destruction of subpoenaed emails, some kind of prescription drug abuse, and a whole slew of other controversies shadowed his term.

We’ll go over the two A.D.A.s that prosecuted Coy; the long string of Texas cases that have been overturned because of new evidence, illegally concealed evidence that came to light, DNA tests botched or simply never done. We’ll talk a little about the scandals at the Children’s Assessment Center, a place that exists to help find the truth and care for abused children, but was rocked by scandal when one of their nurses was accused of improperly gathering evidence for the police.

 

 This is more than the story of a Houston rapper railroaded by the system, in my opinion; it’s the story of a system-wide failure affecting hundreds of innocent people. Carlos Coy’s case is simply one of the most visible.

 

For the record I am not, and have never been, paid by Dope House Records, the Coy family, or anyone at all for writing. I have no personal connections with the family, friends, or associates of Carlos Coy, and I have no personal axe to grind with the Harris County Justice System. The only contact I have with Coy is through letters, and I’ve never met him in person.

 

It is very important to me to be able to bring you sourced information; I will usually post links to these sources below the post, or within it. I use newspaper articles, public records, and court documents that anyone can find. I don’t yet have access to the full trial transcript, but you can read pieces of it in the Habeas Corpus documents online, and in the letters Coy sends for the fans; you can see these in the toolbar to the right.

 

I believe he is innocent, but I can’t prove it, and I will never pretend that I can. My goal in gathering and disseminating information about the case is to eventually get him a new trial, either by turning up new information or by shaming TDCJ into taking another look into a case that I believe they screwed up royally.

 

Whether you agree or disagree, I appreciate you taking the time to learn a little more about the case.

The Powledge address is an older one; they may still deliver a letter addressed there, but it will take longer because they have to forward it.
