Former Oklahoma City Police Officer Daniel Holtzclaw Found Guilty Of Rape:
A jury found former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw guilty Thursday of some of the most serious charges against him, including sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy and rape.
Holtzclaw faced 36 counts. He was found guilty on 18.
The former officer cried openly in the courtroom and rocked in his chair as the verdict was being read. Jurors deliberated for more than 40 hours over four days.
The Oklahoma City Police Department welcomed the verdict. “We are satisfied with the jury’s decision and firmly believe justice was served,” it said.
Sentencing is set for next month.
