KANSAS CITY – Former police detective Roger Golubski was arrested at his home this morning by the FBI, according to multiple sources. The retired detective has been at the center of swirling corruption allegations, and under a federal grand jury investigation for more than a year.

Golubski has now been indicted by a federal grand jury on charges of sexual assault, kidnapping and attempted kidnapping, accused of the sexual assault of two people in the late 1990s.

According to the Department of Justice, the federal grand jury in Topeka, returned a six-count indictment, unsealed today, charging Golubski with federal civil rights crimes for sexually assaulting two victims in the late 1990s while he was "under the color of law", a police officer.

If convicted of the federal charges, he faces life in prison.

According to an October 2021 report from CNN: Roger Golubski has been accused of being "a dirty cop who used the power of his badge to exploit vulnerable black women, including black women who worked as prostitutes."

That accusation was made by Lamonte McIntyre in a 2019 civil complaint. McIntyre was exonerated after spending 23 years in prison, accused of a double murder that had been investigated by Golubski.

Golubski retired at the rank of captain in 2010, after working 35 years at the KCK Police Department.
