OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oklahoma City police officer has been charged with 16 counts that include rape and sexual battery after authorities said he attacked at least eight women while on patrol.
Prosecutors on Friday charged 27-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw, who also faces charges of forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure.
Police arrested Holtzclaw on Aug. 21. Police say Holtzclaw stopped the women, who were all black and between the ages of 34 and 58, while he was on duty. Investigators allege that he raped two women and either fondled others or forced them to expose themselves.
Police have said there may be more victims in the case.
Holtzclaw’s attorney said Friday his client denies the allegations against him.

The Old Man was in the military and then retired- ended up having to work in several union oriented work places- and he bitched something fierce about it. Oh he had no problem accepting the higher wages, he just loathed having to be a part of a union to work those places.
When I got out on my own I quickly learned the difference in wages and representation between union and non-union shops. Which is why I’ve worked at a union shop every chance I get, and do so now.
It just amazes me how many folks take Saturdays off and holidays as a given.
