A former Kansas City detective has been accused of sexually harassing black women and girls and treating some like animals. The state’s statute of limitations prevents them from suing

Two black women who were reportedly victimized by an abusive and corrupt retired Kansas City detective are barred by state law from bringing civil charges.

Roger Golubski, a white man, reportedly had a thing for black women and he used his power as a police officer to sexually exploit them. In one instance, he accused a woman’s son of murder when she refused his demands for sex.

Ophelia Williams told the Kansas City Star Golbuski forced himself on her after officers arrested her 14-year-old twins in 1999.

A lawyer asked Williams during an injunction hearing if she ever called the police.

“No,” she replied. “He was the police.”

Golubski worked for the Kansas City Police Department for 35 years. During this time, it was reportedly known in the department that he would have sex with black female prostitutes and informants and father a number of illegitimate children, according to court documents. In the 1980s, he forced Rose McIntyre to perform oral sex to save her boyfriend from being falsely arrested. He then arrested her son Lamonte for double murder after she blocked a second sexual encounter. Rose’s son was exonerated after serving 23 years in prison.

The McIntyres case exposed Golubski, who retired as captain in 2010. Lawyers for the McIntyre family allege in the lawsuit that the detective hunted about 70 women. He is reportedly facing a grand jury and federal investigation. Williams said she hopes he will be charged and put in jail.

Lamonte and Rose McIntyre received a $12.5 million settlement from the Unified Government of Wyandotte County/Kansas City, Kansas, in late June. It was a far cry from the nearly $100 million they were aiming for. But state law prevents Williams, whose sons have also been arrested for a double murder, from suing.

The detective told Williams he was close to prosecutors and could help them get their sons out of jail, she said. A few days earlier, Golubski was with officers when they were executing an arrest warrant at her home. He told her she had nice legs and that her 12-year-old would be just as pretty when she grew up.

As he sat with her and talked about helping her son, he reportedly approached the woman and put his hand on her leg. She got up and batted it away, despite seeing his Ministry-issued gun. Golubski pushed Williams onto a couch and sexually assaulted her, she said. According to a 2020 statement, the sexual abuse lasted about more than a year.

Williams said she never reported the assaults because she feared retaliation. She had up to two years to file a sexual assault lawsuit under Kansas law. Williams has since hired attorney William Skepnek, who said there should be no statute of limitations for breaches of “the public trust like this.”

In another statement, Tina Peterson said she helped “numerous” alleged victims of Golubski when she worked at a home for battered women in the 1980s. He would put some “still naked” off when he was done with them, she added.

Another woman, identified only as SK in court documents, said Golubski began abusing her in 1997 when she was 13. It took four years.

Kansas is one of four states, including Arkansas, South Dakota and Washington, where victims of children as young as 21 can sue. Iowa is the only state with a lower age limit of 19 years. Numerous legislative attempts to increase or remove Kansas’ time limit for sexual assault lawsuits have failed.

Lora McDonald, executive director of the Metro Organization for Racial and Economic Equity, said the restrictions were “wrong” and said they should never apply to rape survivors.

“[Golubski]is still alive and … has some pensions from the tax money these women earned and paid into, and they know it,” McDonald said. “They’re paying for his very survival and how he’s living in retirement, and they haven’t gotten any justice at all.”

KC said the former attorney called her and said she was a witness to a crime and that she needed to meet with him to clear her wrongdoing. According to reports, Golubski molested and raped the girl. He reportedly threatened to kill her and harm her family if she reported it.

“He told me to just shut up and if I wanted to see my sweet little grandma again, he advised me not to talk to anyone or to talk to anyone and basically pretend they didn’t exist,” she said. “Or I would kiss my grandma goodbye or my brother would spend life in prison.”

In another instance, Golubski put a dog leash around KC’s neck and walked alongside her while she crawled.

“Down by the river, said a handkerchief, where they won’t find you until you stink,” she said Golubski would sing.

“I can throw you in that river and no one will ever know, s-” KC said he told her. “You are an orphan. Nobody knows you’re missing.”

Siobaughn Nichols wrote in a 2014 affidavit that Golubski “was particularly fond of young women—sometimes very young.” Two, aged just 12 and 16, he reportedly paid for sex. One was her cousin, she wrote.

“People seemed to think Detective Golubski was running Wyandotte County because he could apparently get away with anything,” she wrote.
