A Kansas man who spent 23 years in prison for a double murder he did not commit is seeking $93m in damages from the county where he was convicted and a former detective he says framed him.

They also allege Golubski abused Black women for years and many officers were aware of his conduct.

McIntyre was freed from prison in 2017 after a prosecutor asked the court to vacate his convictions and drop all charges.

McIntyre, who now lives in Arizona, has post-traumatic stress disorder and suffered other negative emotional impacts from his imprisonment, according to the lawsuit.

His mother also has been diagnosed with PTSD and has sought psychological treatment for 17 years, the lawsuit says. »
