Go look at how many Officer of the year awards Richard R McKinley has had including the one they gave him the year he conspired this conviction with his evil lover.

Do you really think LSPD would do anything to discipleine him which would be an admission of guilt on what turns out to be a 16 million dollar liability to you, the taxpayer. LSPD, Jackson County prosecutors and the Mayor are all conspiring further to mitigate your loss at the expense of Ted. They will appeal and lose but Rihard will remain Head Dick in LSMO along with the his Tammy Faye Baker wife.

There was a diary missing that had positive comments about Mr. White. There was a relationship between McKinley and Tina during the investigation. There was an interview with the "accuser" and the detective before CP? interviewed her. These are the reasons the conviction was overturned and the civil judgement was made. I understand that.
What I don't understand is how a jury convicted this guy on 12 counts over three years to start with. None of the original "evidence" used in the prosecution was allowed for the jury in the appeal or civil case. What the hell did they have on this guy? Did the daughter really accuse him or was it the mother? Did the detective coach her on what to say in the CP interview?
So can someone simply say I was abused or my daughter was abused and they are guilty without any evidence? What did they used to prosecute this guy?
Bill,
There is alot that you don't know about this case. Particularly, you don't know about the jury and the exposure that they had to lies about what really took place.
The diary did't come to light until after the conviction. And, as for your question about the daughter being coached by McKinley and Tina, it should be obious to you that a trained detective would have no trouble convincing a 12 yr. old about what to say and what not to say; especially with the support of the child's mother.
It is very common in child abuse cases that the testimony of a child will always have more credibility than that of an accused adult; even when it is totally false. Most often, the child is not even brought into court but interviewed away from the court room. Ted's innocents should not even be in question by you or anyone else. Remember, three (3) judges ruled in his favor. Do you really think that that happens often?

Understood. I agree with the judges. This is a very interesting set up.

Congratulations Ted! We at AHS have been rooting for you and praying for your success in this case. You're a good guy and you are a member of a good honest caring family! I know that all the money in the world will not make up for what you endured throughout this time as well as what you probably continue to endure by those who don't know better. May God Bless you and your family! Keep up your spirits and hold your head up high!

The DA for this case as well as the asst. Da's should be considered for formal complaints against their license to practice law in this state. I realize that it's like next to nil of a chance to disbar an attorney much like pulling a license of a physician, but formal complaints are warranted. The Detective, as well as any other officers who knew of the issues involved should be fired and should be charged for their wrongdoings as well. Further, if the original judge on the case had any knowledge of the situation prior to the end of the trial then that judge should also be fired and disbarred and possibly charged as well. Moreover, if he/she is still residing on the bench, I absolutely would not want him to be given the opportunity to resign which would allow him to receive his full retirement entitlement.

Seems like I read somewher that Tina had to return the 600k she stole from Mr White in their divorce when the conviction was overturned back in 2005. The statement insinuated she only needed to cough up another 400k to cover her 1 million in punitive damages. Is that the case? I am assuming the Lee's Summit taxpayers will only have to pay for the good Detectives part.

FACT: Tina's homeowner's insurance policy settled before the civil trial for her part for $600,000 to Ted White which went towards attorney fees and expenses and NOT to Mr. White and/or his family.

Second note: Why don't you check to see if it's true with Mayor Messerli regarding her husband's indecent exposure case that was moved to Overland Park out of the Lee's Summit jurisdiction and/or if she was stopped while driving intoxicated by a Lee's Summit police officer who she verbally abused ... corruption runs deep in Lee's Summit.

Tell us more. We need to spread the word and run these people out of town. The daughter is a lesbian I understand bythe way and the son is a pot head. He has all kinds of reference to pot on his facebook. What a joke.

Bill,
Unfortunately, Tina's oldest daughter and son have problems. Why wouldn't they especially with Tina as their mother and McKinley as their father. Any child would growing up in an environment that is unhealthy. It is sad but we can only pray for those children. As far as Ted's biological son (that is if it is his biological son since Tina had affairs during their marriage - but let's hope that he is), he will never know his kind and loving father. Ted loves him with all of his heart. Could you imagine loosing your child at the age of 3 and knowing that the man who put Ted in prison is raising TED's son? Ted is an amazing/strong man. He's forgiven these people and is going on with his life without any revenge but of love, forgiveness and hope. Hopefully all those who were involved with the corruption of Ted's case stemming from Lee's Summit Police Department all the way to the top, will be able to repent of their sins and be forgiven. That is God's plan.

I hope God's plan includes somehow eliminating these two's exposure to the public. Put them in prison or let them die from a painfull cause. Sooner the better.

To Tina and Richardp, go to hell. An old friend, so I thought.

I just moved into my home 2 years ago. I had never heard about these people. Their youngest son use to mow our yard when we first moved in because we didn't have a mower yet. Then as soon as we got a mower and he stopped mowing our lawn we started getting complaints from the city about different things. From having to many leaves in our yard to having our trash cans sitting in front of our garage. Then we had a fire at our house a couple of months ago. It takes time to get the insurance company out, get contractors out to bid on the job, ect. We started getting complaints again for not getting our repairs done fast enough and that our paint was chipping on the side of our house! Our you frakin kidding me? We just had a fire!! We where speaking to our other neighbors and they told us to google Richard and Tina McKinley.....OMG! I couldn't believe what I was reading! She is obviously one of those people that will never learn her lesson about how to properly treat people! Karma is a bitch and she is coming for you guys! Just hope I'm not home when lighting strikes their house!

I consider myself a law abiding citizen, I've never been arrested, and I've had some dealings with the Lee's Summit PD and I think they're probably one of the worst PD's in the US. Why aren't Tina and Richard being prosecuted? Why isn't there an investigation into the PD? Why isn't the prosecutor at that time being prosecuted?

You Lie. Ted did not get his settlement until July 2011. http://www.lsjournal.com/2011/07/26/70372/cit...
I'm sure he's taken care of his parents. And your name wouldn't happen to be Tina McKinley, Richard McKinley or Randy Rhoads?

As one of those people that supported Ted financially, I can tell you that he is the ultimate con man. He did not fully pay back his parents, only about 250k short! Ted owes many people hundreds of thousands of dollars that he refuses to pay back. His family has basically disowned him. His father told him he didnt even wanting him calling the house (Doc has since passed away). The fact is that he got so many pre-settlement loans (at high interest rates) that were tied to the lawsuit proceeds, there wasn't much left. This was all to finance an out of control lifestyle (just like before he went to prison) that includes a 5,000 sq. ft house in utah, fancy powerboat, multiple cars (at least 7 cars at one time) lake home... the list goes on and on. This is the real Ted White

I too feel that I have been scammed by Ted. I really thought we had become good friends but I guess that is not true. We lost a lot on his behalf and was told we thought in good faith we would be taken care of. I pray for you Ted because "what comes around, goes around". I really feel sorry for you.

This is absolutley believable. Ted White Jr. borrowed thousands of dollars from my deceased father and I have been getting smoke blown up my rear for over a year now trying to collect. One boo-hoo story after another. I have two bounced checks from him and am turning one over to he local prosecutor for collection next week unless he pays up. This man is a pure scam artist...he has a list of complaints a mile long and is not to be trusted. His day will come soon enough and he will eventually find his way back to jail.
