Graphic Statements Start Rapper’s Trial
Victim, 9, Expected To Testify
Coy, who was charged with 12 counts of sexual assault of a child, is on trial for allegedly sexually assaulting a 9-year-old girl, his daughter’s friend who visited Coy’s house last September to spend the night.
In opening statements, jurors were told, "Coy touched the girl on her backside and private parts. Then he told her not to tell."
Prosecutor Denise Oncen said it all happened while the girl was sleeping next to Coy’s 6-year-old daughter.
Seven girls have accused the rapper of molesting them, according to officials.
"We believe that the facts will set the Mexican free," said Sylvia Boy, Coy’s sister. "A lot of things that have been said and written, so far, have been mostly hearsay or inaccurate."
Coy’s sister is the general manager of his record company, Dope House Records.
"I know him pretty well," Boy said. "I don’t believe (he’s capable of this)."
The defense claims that Coy is being victimized by people who want to bring him down.
Coy’s attorney said the rapper once had an intimate relationship with the girl’s mother until Coy put an end to it. He said that jealousy is a motivating factor.
"He has two children. I’ve seen the way he’s been around them and he’s nothing but a loving father," said Einstein Tealer, a friend of Coy’s.
The 9-year-old victim is expected to testify against Coy.
