Doug Clark: Kevin Coe Field Trip Requires Shower

Full column here

I need a shower. A really hot shower. With lots and lots of soap. And maybe an amnesia drug. Anything to wipe away the fecal memories of my day with Kevin Coe. Oh, it sounded like such a great idea. I got up Monday morning, brewed a pot of coffee, picked up the newspaper … “Coe faces day of reckoning,” blared the headline across the top of Page One. Hmm. That sounds like an intriguing field trip, I said to myself. I’ll go see if state prosecutors can win one for Team Human. The goal is to persuade Superior Court Judge Kathleen O’Connor to grant a civil trial that could keep Spokane’s infamous South Hill rapist locked away for the rest of his days. If not, Coe walks. He’s done his time, more than 25 years — Doug Clark/Spokesman-Review.
