My premise is that Eric Lee Coker was a rapist because he inherited the trait from his father

Based upon the research I have done on Coker was serving a sentence for a string of heinous crimes. While serving this sentence he escaped from prison and raped a man’s wife. And went to trial and was Not given the death penalty for the rape due to a cruel and unusual punishment law.

My ex-husband was a con man and identify thief. And a bad one to. Fact of the matter is he lied a lot, Manipulated, had low self-esteem, and seemed to take on conditions he read about. Now to take a comparison...
