Daniel Holtzclaw found guilty of preying on women while on duty as a cop

Over a six month period, Daniel Holtzclaw, the ex-Oklahoma City police officer, took advantage of his badge by subjecting at least 13 African-American women from age 17 to 57 to sexual assault. Prosecutors said that Holtzclaw would select his victims in one of the city’s poorest neighborhoods, singling out women of color with prior records in order to undermine any claims they might levy against him in court. Holtzclaw’s conviction provides justice to the sexual assault survivors who believed that Holtzclaw’s abuse of police authority would go unchecked because of his race.
