Man Charged with Perjury During His Murder Trial
By Cami Toronto, Communications —
Calvin McKinney, 31, has been charged with lying under oath during his murder trial for the death of Keynen Guider. Calvin was originally found guilty of attempted murder of Guider two days before she was shot and killed in December of 2017. McKinney’s original trial ended in a hung jury, which resulted in a mistrial. He is scheduled to be re-tried later this month, but that will likely be delayed several months.
This charge of allegedly lying under oath will be taken into consideration during the retrial, something that does not weigh in favor of McKinney’s testimony. It’s more likely that he will be found guilty the second time around with this red flag being made known. One thing’s for sure: McKinney didn’t do himself a favor by lying under oath, especially when the stakes were so high.
Looking for honesty in your potential employees before hiring them? Converus has the solution: EyeDetect is an employee screening technology that assesses the trustworthiness and personal integrity of possible new hires before they’re hired. EyeDetect can assess a person’s integrity during a 30-minute true/false screening test. (Note: The Employee Polygraph Protection Act prohibits using lie detectors like EyeDetect in private companies in the U.S. However, federal, state and municipal government employees or contractors may be tested.)
