Oklahoma City Council to vote on excessive force settlement

The Associated Press and The Oklahoman - March 25, 2019 1:12 pm

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – The Oklahoma City Council is planning to vote on whether to approve a $25,000 settlement for an excessive force lawsuit against a former Oklahoma City police officer.

The Oklahoman reports that the council will vote Tuesday on the proposed settlement between the city, ex-police officer Daniel K. Holtzclaw and plaintiff Demetria M. Campbell.

Holtzclaw is serving a 236-year sentence for a 2015 conviction of rape, sexual battery, indecent exposure and other sexual offenses. The 32-year-old was charged with sexually assaulting 12 black women and one black teenager.

Campbell alleges in her lawsuit that Holtzclaw pushed her without provocation, banging her face and head against a brick wall outside a restaurant in 2013 while he was on active police duty.
