Oklahoma cop accused of raping 3 more women on duty, now faces 32 charges total
An Oklahoma City police officer was charged with additional counts of rape this week after three more women came forward to say that he forced them to have sex with him while he was on duty.
Earlier this year, prosecutors accused Daniel Holtzclaw of raping at least six women while he was on patrol. He was charged with 26 counts, including rape, sexual battery, oral sodomy, indecent exposure, stalking, and burglary.
Some of the women said that Holtzclaw forced them to have sex to avoid being arrested.
According to The Oklahoman, prosecutors filed six more counts against the officer on Tuesday. The latest charges included three counts of first-degree rape, forcible oral sodomy, sexual battery and second-degree rape.
Court records obtains by KWTV said that Holtzclaw told one of the victims: “You are going to give me some sex…or you’re a** is going to jail.”
“This is what you are going to have to do. I don’t want to take you to jail,” he allegedly warned another one of the women.
Holtzclaw now faces 32 charges related to sex crimes, but he has continued to deny any wrongdoing.
“Daniel denies that he’s done anything wrong and looks forward to his day in court,” Holtzclaw’s attorney, Scott Adams, told reporters. “He’s ready to get back to work at the police department.”
