Kansas City, Cannes. – A Kansas man who spent 23 years in prison for a double murder he did not commit is seeking $ 93 million in compensation from the county where he was convicted and a former detective says he was framed.
Lamonte McIntyre, 45, and her mother filed a lawsuit in 2018 alleging that the prosecution was responsible for the actions of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, the Unified Government of Kansas, the former Kansas City of Kansas, police detective Roger Golubsky and other officers involved.
A federal judge on Thursday set November 7 for a civil case The unified government wants to move the trial to Wichita due to widespread publicity in the Kansas City area, KCUR reported.
McIntyre’s Mao is seeking $ 30 million. He and his son allege that Golubsky sexually assaulted him and then convicted McIntyre of double murder in 1994 because he denied the detective’s subsequent sexual advances.
They further alleged that Golubsky had abused black women for years and that many officers were aware of his behavior. The pre-trial order includes the initials of 73 women.
Golubsky denies the allegations and says his case will not be allowed as evidence. If the allegations are accepted, he will argue that he was a good officer in his career from 1975 to 2010, when he retired, according to his lawyers.
McIntyre was released from prison in 2017 after a local prosecutor asked the court to convict him and withdraw all charges. In 2020, he was awarded a certificate of innocence from the state and 1.5 million.
McIntyre, who now lives in Arizona, suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and suffered other negative emotional effects from his imprisonment, according to the lawsuit.
His mother has been suffering from PTSD and has been seeking psychiatric treatment for 17 years, the lawsuit alleges.
The local government claims that even if the allegations of misconduct are proven, it is not responsible because the actions of the officials were outside their employment opportunities. It also denies that the police chief was aware of the alleged misconduct.
