OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma court on Thursday upheld the rape and sexual assault convictions and 263-year prison sentence of a former Oklahoma City police officer.
The Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals unanimously rejected appeals by Daniel Holtzclaw. Holtzclaw has maintained his innocence.
An AP investigation highlighting his case found about 1,000 officers lost their licenses for sexual misconduct over six years. Holtzclaw’s family said in a statement it is devastated, but not surprised by the ruling.
