Wrongfully Convicted Man Launches $93 Million Lawsuit After Serving 23 Years in Prison

Wrongfully Convicted Man Launches $93 Million Lawsuit After Serving 23 Years in Prison

An American man who languished in jail for 23 years for a double murder he didn't commit is back in court.

However, this time he's taking on the state and the individuals who he says robbed him of a significant chunk of his life.

Lamonte McIntyre, 45, is seeking $93 million in damages from the Unified Government of Wyandotte County and Kansas City, Kansas, and against former detective Roger Golubski.

His mother, Rose is seeking an additional $30 million in damages, AP reports.

Lamonte and Rose both allege Golubski tried to pressure Rose into start a sexual relationship with him, and when she rejected him, the former detective framed her son for a 1994 double homicide.

Lawyers for the McIntyre's claim Golubski abused Black women for years, exploiting them for sex and then pressuring them to become anonymous 'informants' to clear or resolve cases. The lawyers also claim that multiple officers were aware of Golubski's conduct and alleged abuse of power.

“Golubski used his badge to protect the guilty, frame the (innocent), and serve his personal agenda, whether it was carrying out a vendetta or protecting the drug dealers who paid him,” the lawyers say in the order, as reported by KCUR radio.

According to the documents, 73 women, including Rose McIntyre, have made these allegations against the former detective.

Golubski was the lead detective for the 1994 case that saw Doniel Quinn, 22, and Donald Ewing, 34, shot dead in a drug-riddled part of Kansas City.

McIntyre was arrested just six hours after the shootings. Since his release from prison, no one else has been charged.

The ex-police detective has denied the claims against him and has requested that they be disallowed as evidence.

According to a statement from his lawyer, if the allegations are admitted Golubski will argue he was a good cop during his career from 1975 through 2010, when he retired.

McIntyre was freed from prison in 2017 after District Attorney Mark Dupree told the court that this was a case of 'manifest injustice', according to AP.

"I believe that had (the information) been presented to the jury in the 1994 trial that convicted Mr. McIntyre, it may certainly have caused those jurors to have reasonable doubt as to Mr. McIntyre’s guilt,” Dupree said.

In 2020, he was awarded a certificate of innocence and $1.5 million from the state.
