OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — An Oklahoma City police officer was charged Friday with 16 counts including first-degree rape and sexual battery after being accused of assaulting at least eight women while on patrol.
Daniel Holtzclaw, 27, also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure. Holtzclaw, a former standout football player in high school and college, was arrested Aug. 21. He remained in custody on a $5 million cash bond Friday, according to jail records.
He is accused of stopping women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while on duty in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves, and police said there may be more victims.

Wait so is he being falsely accused or what i have no idea whats up
Unlikely, considering less than 2% of all accusations of rape and other sexual abuses are estimated to be “false”. He’s got at least thirty-nine women accusing him of this —it is statistically more likely that one of these women is actually a ham sandwich than it is that any of them are making false accusations against him.
but then why is there a fundraiser for justice for him? I’m just genuinely confused in this situation.
