OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Evidence against an Oklahoma City police officer accused of sexually assaulting 13 women while on patrol is scheduled to be made public in an Oklahoma County courtroom.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled Monday for 27-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw. Holtzclaw was arrested in August and faces a total of 32 charges including rape, sexual battery and stalking. Holtzclaw has pleaded not guilty.

The hearing will determine whether there is sufficient evidence that crimes have been committed and whether there is probable cause to believe that Holtzclaw committed them.

The victims, including a 17-year-old girl, say Holtzclaw forced them to commit sex acts while he was on duty. His attorney, Scott Adams, says Holtzclaw looks forward to his day in court and is ready to get back to work at the police department.
