Ted White

Mark Morris has more about the case of Ted White, a Lee's Summit man who spent five years behind bars for a crime that he didn't commit. He won a $16 million lawsuit against a former LS police detective, Richard McKinley:

He contended that McKinley conspired to violate his right to a fair trial by hiding his affair with White’s then-wife and not producing a child’s diary that could have contained important evidence.

Now? The judge has ordered McKinley to pay another $1.57 million in legal fees and expenses to White's attorneys.
