Back in 1994, Lamonte McIntyre was convicted of double murder and spent the next 23 years in a Kansas prison. Now McIntyre is being released after he it was determined he was wrongfully convicted and the state has offered him absolutely nothing for the time spent behind bars.
Turns out, Kansas is one of 18 states that don’t offer wrongfully convicted prisoners compensation upon release. McIntyre says, “I think it’s unjust, but me being angry about it is not going to change it.”
He was allegedly wrongfully convicted at the hands of a corrupt detective, Roger Golubski. He reportedly built a case against McIntyre by threatening witnesses. Though Golubski has retired, state attorneyMark Dupree wants to investigate his conduct.
In the meantime, McIntyre wants to pick up the pieces of his life. He’s actually studying to be a barber. "I want to spend the rest of my life being happy,” McIntyre notes. “I don't want to be bitter. That's taking away from me. I don't have any more time to give.”
