First post of the month, time for another letter to the D.A.! But first, snippet news. It looks like the snippets for The S.O.N. and the free track, Angels, are set to be released this Friday. Trey Coy has announced that it’ll be available on Soundcloud.
Please, contact your favorite DJ and let him or her know that there’s a new track about to be released, and you want to hear it on the radio! Let them know where they can find it, and if they give you any shit about the case remind them that there is a lot more information available about what went on in that courtroom now than there was ten years ago. You can mention the blog if you want, but the big thing right now is to let people know Coy’s still around, still making music, and still fighting for a fair trial.
As always please feel free to write your own letter, copy this one, or just send one of the flyers to your right, but please, send something!
District Attorney Mike Anderson
I’m writing to you today about the case of Carlos Coy, #908426.
Mr. Coy was convicted 11 years ago but continues to be a relevant, if polarizing, figure; not only because of the questions surrounding his case, but because he continues to speak to fans through his music; past, present, and future. Coy’s label, Dope House Records, is preparing to release his new album. This Friday, snippets of each track and one free song will be released.
The song is already receiving radio play, and I think it’s likely that we’re going to see renewed interest in his case; I hope that you will consider looking into it.
Carlos Coy is in the hearts and minds of many of your constituents, and remains so even after 11 years of incarceration. With every year that goes by, more information becomes available about the state of Houston’s judicial system during Chuck Rosenthal’s administration; more and more of the wrongfully convicted, all across Texas, are finally winning their freedom.
I urge you to review his case, to consider the testimony against him. Think about the lack of physical evidence, the way witnesses’ testimony changed from one day to the next. I do not believe that the state proved its case, and that will eventually become common knowledge. Please, give us justice.
Me, my address, etc etc etc.
