A former police detective in Kansas City, Kansas, at the center of community complaints of corruption and accusations that he preyed on Black women was charged Thursday with federal civil rights crimes involving sexual assault.
The retired detective, Roger Golubski, 69, appeared in court later Thursday on six counts related to rape of a woman from 1998 to 2001 and another woman from 1999 to 2002 while he was employed by the Kansas City Police Department, the Justice Department said. Golubski pleaded not guilty and remained in custody, with another hearing set for Monday.
