Another subject that may come up when discussing Coy’s case is his son with Jill Odom, who was 14 when she gave birth; there is a lot of misinformation floating around the web about this, and I think it’s important to know what Coy says about the issue.
There’s just not a lot of documentation about what happened; even the atrociously incomplete ‘South Park Monster’, ostensibly the all-encompassing bible of the trial, only mentions her briefly. To the author’s credit, he does admit that Odom testified Coy may not have known her age.
He dismisses this with the accusation that Coy supposedly picked her up from her middle school, a charge that Coy denies. Lacking any reliable news sources on the subject, I have compiled most of Coy’s posts on the subject.
Don’t be afraid of this aspect of the argument; it happened, and ignoring it or denying the truth is not going to make it go away. You can see my opinion here:
In the end, you’re going to have to examine the situation and come to your own decision about it. If you’re not sure what you think about, don’t feel compelled to discuss it or excuse it. This is not what Coy was convicted of and has very little to do with the case, all things considered.
