It’s fair to say that Daniel Holtzclaw is an evil man. During 2013-2014 he preyed on low-income black women and 13 came forward to accuse him of sexual assault and rape. He demeaned them and took advantage of his position as a law enforcement officer.
His awful actions go beyond imagination. The sickness of the way he abused his power and ruined at very very least 13 lives is disgusting.
And now, he won’t likely be seeing freedom again as he was sentenced to 263 years behind bars. He won’t be able to take advantage of anymore women.
Yahoo News reported:
Holtzclaw waived his right to remain in custody in the county jail for 10 days, instead opting to be taken directly to prison. Defense attorney Scott Adams said Holtzclaw will appeal.
“It is what it is,” Adams said. “It wasn’t a surprise.”
Oklahoma County District Attorney David Prater had strong words for Holtzclaw, who was convicted last month on 18 counts, including four first-degree rape counts as well as forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery, procuring lewd exhibition and second-degree rape. Holtzclaw was acquitted on 18 other counts.
“I think people need to realize that this is not a law-enforcement officer that committed these crimes. This is a rapist who masqueraded as a law-enforcement officer,” Prater said after the sentencing. “If he was a true law enforcement officer he would have upheld his duty to protect those citizens rather than victimize them.”
