A large group of people marched near downtown Houston Friday afternoon in support of a jailed hip-hop artist they say was wrongfully convicted of aggravated sexual assault in May 2002.
Carlos Coy was sentenced to 45 years in prison for the assault of a 9-year-old girl who was staying at his home during a children’s sleepover.
Coy is known as South Park Mexican in Houston’s Latin hip-hop scene. He was a popular act in the late ’90s and early ’00s until the conviction and incarceration. In the past decade supporters have remained united behind him.
According to the Houston Press, this week representatives from the rapper’s local label, Dope House Records, intended to march to the Harris County district attorney’s office for a peaceful protest of the 12-year-old conviction. They say that Coy was convicted based on hearsay,without physical evidence. They would like to see his case retried. After the protest the group planned to return to the label’s location on Center Street for a mixer.
According to the Houston Press, Coy may not get a chance for parole until he’s at least 52 years old. Coy turns 44 on Sunday.
A Houston Press feature in the summer of 2002 told the tale of Coy, once the pride of Houston’s burgeoning hip-hop turned convicted child molester. His story of small-time street thug turned inspiration to Hispanic youth touched many, making the child molestation conviction more shocking to his supporters.
His label has managed to release new music under his name since his 2002 conviction, including the recent “Son of Norma” LP released on Sept. 30.
