OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – An Oklahoma County judge is scheduled to set a trial date for a former Oklahoma City police officer who faces dozens of charges of sexually assaulting 13 women while on duty.

A pre-trial conference is scheduled Wednesday for Daniel Holtzclaw, who faces a total of 36 charges that include six counts of first-degree rape. The rape charges carry a sentence of up to life in prison.

Attorneys are expected to ask District Judge Timothy Henderson to set a trial date during the hearing. Holtzclaw has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Holtzclaw was ordered to stand trial in November following a hearing where the alleged victims gave graphic testimony about the sex acts they said they did not want to perform but did so because they were frightened.
