Now, 29-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw of Oklahoma City, is facing up to 263 years in prison after being convicted of numerous rape and assault charges.

According to the police investigation, Holtzclaw took advantage of black women who had criminal histories.

Holtzclaw raped at least 13 women while he was on patrol. A 50-year-old woman told the court that Holtzclaw, pulled her over on suspicion of drunken driving.

He ordered her to sit in the back seat of his patrol car, where he exposed himself and told her to perform a sex act on him. In another incident, Holtzclaw stopped a 17-year-old girl and escorted her to her mother’s house.

He then pulled down her pants and raped her. Holtzclaw denied the allegations, saying that all the women are drug addicts and could not be relied upon.

The jury rejected this claim, and convicted Holtzclaw of rape and assault. They also recommend that he serve 263 years in prison.
