Letter to Greg Abbott 2

Time for another letter to the governor! Please, feel free to write your own, copy this one, or just send one of the flyers to your right. Thank you for all your efforts!

Greg Abbot 
Office of the Governor
P.O. Box 12428
Austin, Texas 78711-2428


I’m writing today about the case of Carlos Coy, #908426.
As I’m sure you are aware, the Court of Criminal Appeals will soon begin its review of Rodney Reed’s case for DNA testing; whatever your feelings about that case, the years of delay and the fight against an examination of the evidence speaks volumes about the odds against any inmate struggling for exoneration.

     Serious questions have also been raised about Mr. Coy’s case; despite the time that has passed since his conviction, those questions remain unanswered. The lack of physical evidence, the rapidly changing testimony of at least two key witnesses…these are not marks of a strong case. Please, consider assigning Coy’s case to a post-conviction review unit, or take a look at it personally. Help us learn the truth about the his trial.

Me, my address, etc.

It is hard to believe that the courts in Texas can still get away with putting a man in prison just because they want to. Most Respect to Mr. Coy for keeping his head up and showing that he is a REAL TEXAS G. Free SPM
