Ask Another Mexican

Free SPM (oh, and buy his new CD)

While Houston rapper Carlos Coy, aka South Park Mexican, sits in a Texas Department of Corrections prison serving a 45-year sentence for the sexual assault of a nine-year-old girl, his family and friends are mounting a Free SPM campaign. The charges are bogus, they say. The accuser was just out to get SPM's money, they insist. Actually, that would be accusers, plural. A total of eight girls and young women, the youngest nine years old, have accused SPM of having sexual contact with them while they were underage.

Taking a page from Houston Presscontributor Gustavo Arellano's "Ask a Mexican" humor column, where readers ask Arellano to explain Hispanics, we decided to ask anotherMexican to explain SPM. There's nothing funny about SPM's situation, of course. At best he's an innocent man falsely convicted of a heinous crime. At worst he's a pedophile.

These are the facts:

In 1995, Carlos Coy and his brother Arthur Coy, Jr. launch Dope House Records, with SPM as the label's leading artist.

In 1999, while talking about his dropping out of school at the age of 17, Coy tells Houston Press contributor Craig D. Lindsey, "One more year in high school and I would've went to jail for fucking all those little young bitches."

In August 2000, Dope House records sales exceed 1.5 million units.

In July 2001, 20-year-old Jill Odom files a lawsuit against Carlos Coy asking that he be declared the legal father of her son, Jordan Dominique Odom. Odom was only 13 when she began the relationship with Coy and only 14 when she gave birth. During their relationship, Coy, in his early twenties, knew Odom was in seventh grade. Paternity tests later prove that Coy is the boy's father.

On September 1, 2001, a nine-year-old playmate of Coy's six-year-old daughter Carley spends the night at the Coy home. Sometime during the night, the girl, later called Jane Doe, says she doesn't feel well and asks to be taken home. Coy drives her home, sitting down to have menudo with her grandparents when they arrive. The girl's parents are close friends of the Coy family.

On September 25, 2001, Carlos Coy is arrested and charged with aggravated sexual assault of Jane Doe, who claims Coy entered the bedroom where she was sleeping with Carley Coy and molested her, licking her vaginal area.

On March 6, 2002, the Harris County District Attorney's office files additional sexual assault charges against Coy, alleging that on February 3, Coy, who was awaiting the Jane Doe trial, and some friends picked up two 14-year-old female fans and took them to a motel in North Houston. Coy says nothing sexual took place during the visit, claiming that he napped in the hotel room alone while the rest of the group went to a local cafŽ, but one girl claims she had had sex with the rapper. Coy turns himself in on March 7 and his bond is revoked.

On May 6, 2002, Coy's trial begins. There is no physical evidence of a sexual assault presented during the trial. The prosecution's case consists almost entirely of the girl's testimony, which includes the statement that she thinks the assault might have been a dream.

On May 18, 2002, the jury deliberates for less than eight hours. They find Coy guilty.

On May 30, 2002, with his possible punishment ranging from probation to life in prison, Carlos Coy is sentenced to 45 years in prison and fined $10,000. Coy will be at least 52 years old before he's considered for parole. After the sentencing, Harris County prosecutors Denise Oncken and Lisa Andrews tell reporters they would have preferred a longer sentence.

On September 4, 2002, Mary Doe, on behalf of Jane Doe, a minor, files a civil suit against Coy seeking monetary damages.

On October 3, 2006, Dope House Records releases South Park Mexican's tenth CD, When Devils Strike. Reaction ranges from outrage by victims' advocates to joy from some of his fans.

Those are the facts. Here is one man's opinion:

Pete "Dirty Werk" Camarillo, a producer for Dope House Records says, "Basically...the evidence wasn't really too strong in his case. That's why we're starting...the Free SPM campaign. We...want...to let everybody know that we have total faith and total belief in [him].

"We think it was basically a witch hunt. They didn't really like seeing a Mexican in his type of position, so I think they tried to do what they could to slow him down, but you know this record [When Devils Strike] coming out is just proof that you can't stop what the people want, and you can't change the beliefs of people despite what type of propaganda...gets put out.

"We're just sticking by him and doing what we can. That had a lot to do with this record, just letting everyone know the truth. If you want to hear from the man's mouth, then we're suggesting that everyone go pick up the record and see what it's about. It's not promotional hype, it's not done just to make a buck. It's actually a message that's being sent out there for the greater good of what we believe in."

And here's another man's opinion:

Rapper and longtime SPM associate Juan Gotti says, "That's not my friend, that's my brother. People are tripping out because they're saying, 'He recorded [the CD] in jail!' Now, if you pay close attention to the album, you'll find out that not only does he speak like he's behind bars, I also, myself, speak like I'm in a unit, right there with him. That's premeditated. We recorded this two years ago when everything started. So, people are thinking, 'Oh my God, he's recording in jail, he's recording in jail!' Keep thinking that. It's selling albums, thank you."

People are so racist it's crazy. I'm a white birch and I find it wrong that he got 45 years just for the fact that people proven without a doubt of doing things like that have gotten only half that time if any at all before and he has too much lack of evidence. And I hate to say it cause I have two daughters of my own, but when it comes to the fourteen year old girl, he coulda thought she was an adult or close to. When I was fourteen men thought I was seventeen eighteen, I just never had sex with any of them like that girl did. Also, ALOT men in their twenties mess with teenagers sadly. I've had too many to count try to mess with me and friends. Ands that's men of all races. I don't know if he innocent or not, but he shouldn't have that much time with so much lack of evidence. Its wrong in so many ways and makes me further question judges, police, the system in General. Innocent until PROVEN guilty. Not quilty for all cases that aren't proven just because one case was. People can get mad and hate my comment or be racist with me all they want. ..I don't fcking care. If people use a little common sense and get over their selves with jealousy, racism or just looking to put someone down or argue, then u would see me and all the other people who have said this have a point. There's no denying it. I'm not saying it's right cause I Damn sure didn't do it since I know my place, but Damn near every fourteen fifteen year old girl I've ever met messes with older men. Its so common it's ridiculous. But nobody points that out. Point, quit looking for a fight off of other people's struggles. Everyone needs to grow up and look at facts. Not saying he innocent cause I won't there, but if u were put in his place but actually innocent, would u want people bashing u just cause of all their own selfish reasons? It has to be selfish reasons if people ignore the emptiness of all the lack of evidence besides a fourteen year girl at the time.

I ask for an econeration of wrongful accused Carlos Coy Aka "SPM" aka "southpark mojado"

You people are nuts.  He is clearly guilty of child molesting and underage sex.  The baby was proven to be his child.  Simple math will reveal he was having sex with a child.  And all of those other girls... all of them are lying?  A little precious 9-year old girl?  When will you stop believing the lies and realize the truth.  Just because he has good music does not mean he doesn't deserve to be in jail.

I just find it odd that he got so much time when NO evidence was presented. Michael Jackson had more "evidence" presented, yet he got time off. Let's see what happens to R. Kelly. There's actual video footage of him having sex with a minor.

My name is Juan Carlo and I'm from 3rd Ward. I think this is the worst case of convicting without evidence I've ever seen. Michael won because there was no evidence and I think he did it. Jackson was crazy. I guess it had something to do with the fact he's more famous and has more money. Carlos was normal. He always was. I really dont think that a normal father would molest his 6 year old daughter's friend. It is a fact that her family was living in poverty. A nine year old girl wouldnt make that up either. To put a man away for 45 years on something a 9 year old says is rediculous. She was going back and forth, saying this and that, changing her story a lot in court. �Ese es Tonterias completo!

I'm mexican and white too. I aint "hatin" on anybody but u dont know shit for a fact. U WERENT THERE!! I have been bumpin SPM since '96 and will forever but just becuz he can rap good doesnt mean he didnt do it. Try to come up w/ something half way intelligent to say! I do think they should reduce the sentence at least though 45 years is extreme.

Eric Marvin

Hey All u haters fuck yall and suck my dick i no spm didnt do it those girls are whack so all u ppl hatin shut up and get a fucking life. iam hispanic and white so i support mexes and whites but all you fuckin straight up whites or even mexicans who are haitin on spm fuck you cuz ive always listened to spm since i was a kid even though iam half white i dont care i still want spmex to be free and i think they should re trial atleast cuz 45 years is way to fucking long even if he didnt do it. FREE SP-MEX 2.1.0. SAN ANTON all they way born and raised.

Eric Marvin

Thats fking wack they locked SPM up. i beleive he didnt do it they just tryin to keep him in the pen so he dont do no more bad stuff. Carlos is a tight rapper i known his music since i can remember i bet that girl is a big fking lier just like the 14 year old tryed to say her and los slepted together but there wasnt enough evidence and then she thought it maybe have been just a dream she was just tryin to get money. Iam with the free spm. all us down here in 2.1.0. SAN ANTON are supportin los.

Jose

Carlos is a really good rapper and I listen to his music almost everyday, but theres a chance that this might be true because he had a baby with a 14 year old when he was in his 20s so thats why they put him in jail...hopefully its not true but there is a chance he could of done it...No matter what I will always be bumping SPM!

Bobby

Okay let me start with this... If SPM did do it (which I sincerely hope he didn't) he belongs right where he is. That being said it is wrong to convict a man and sentence him to 45 years w/ NO PHYSICAL EVIDENCE! R. Kelly made a video w/ an underage girl and is still out making money and living his life. Its bullshit! I don't think its a big conspiracy to bring the mexican people down. But I do think it was a biased jury who had their minds made up before the trial began. I seen that the victim filed a lawsuit to get money from spm and I think that that is what this is all about. SPM has been 1 of my favorite rappers since '96 and I hope either way the truth and its consequences are served. None of u people were there so don't say for sure that he did or didn't do it!!!

All this talk about whats wrong or right, well i think its right to have convicted him of being a Pedophile , it's clearly proven with the young girl he had a baby with, when she was under age and he was in his Twenties. I feel for the little girls, being a father of three daughters this would really piss me off and I would want nothing more than for him to rot in hell. Now for what i think is wrong, alot of the child molesters here in Lubbockare white, and alot of the people around these communities agree that it's pure bullshit that these guys are out on the streets on probation, they should beaten and raped witha fuckin broomstick so they know firsthand the horrible fucking experience and impressionthey've left with their victim. They should recieve the same harsh sentence also, all Pedophilesshould be in prison for LIFE or be sentenced to DEATH. Thats what makes it seem racistto some people, and some people like me agree with both sides, it should be EQUAL!!!Whites and Hispanics should be treated the same when it comes to molesting children, Life in prison!

SPM was wrongly convicted on little evidence, he should have got a lesser sentence. He had strong lyrics that did affect the Latino Community, but they just had to put another minority behind bars. Thats white America!! Fuck all you gringos........ Salvatrucha for Life

He's a good rapper, and r.kelly is a good singer, but the children in this world are safer with those pigs in prison. Just because someone is the same race as me doesn't mean that they represent my race and SPM is nothing but an embarrassment to Mexicans so faq that puto for being a sick hoto. He's lucky that little girl isn't in my family cause we wouldn't have called no police on him ya heard!!!! there's just sick people out there and you "free spm retards" probably would still be like "free spm" if he molested your 9 year old daughter or son. Dang have some respect for the girls he preyed upon and their families, maybe they ain't famous rappers but they are Mexicans too...... puro west side

A jury of his peers found him guilty so that settles it. That's the American Justice System. Cry and protest until the cows come home but it's not gonna free the low-life known as SPM. You shout out Mexican pride so loud but don't seem to care one bit for the Mexican girls he molested. And whatever "movement" you think is happening needs a hooked on phonics lesson because most of you defending him can't spell for shit. The crap hole of a country you so love and miss is only a couple of hours away on the Greyhound. Adiois.
