Long resistant, Kansas’ top attorney acknowledges Lamonte McIntyre’s innocence

Kansas man Lamonte McIntyre spent 23 years in prison, convicted of a double murder, before that conviction was overturned in 2017 based on evidence of widespread misconduct that led to a wrongful conviction. More than two years later, the Kansas attorney general has agreed to acknowledge McIntyre’s innocence — opening the door for McIntyre to be compensated and have his conviction expunged.
