Why Witness In 1994 Trial Of Lamonte McIntyre Gave False Testimony Then Later Recanted
The woman who falsely identified 17-year old McIntyre says she was pressured by a Kansas City, Kansas police detective and coerced by a county prosecutor.
The witness was Niko Quinn, the detective, Roger Golubksi, and the assistant prosecutor was Terra Morehead. A joint investigation by KCUR and The Kansas City Star revealed numerous allegations of Golubski preying on and assaulting vulnerable Black women. Morehead, now a federal prosecutor, faced a series of ethics complaints. Kansas City Star columnist Melinda Henneberger spoke with Quinn to get her story.
