*Victims of rape by Oklahoma police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, who was convicted for raping more than a dozen primarily African American women and was sentenced to 263 years in prison a few months ago, now have something new to worry about.
Where in the hell is Daniel Holtzclaw?
A legal representative for the victims say they are suffering from anxiety, and blame the prison for erasing any trace of this criminal.
“Not knowing exactly where or if Holtzclaw is locked up brings crushing anxiety to our clients fearful that Holtzclaw might be able to somehow get to them,” Damario Solomon-Simmons, an attorney representing seven of the disgraced officer’s 13 victims in a civil suit, told NewsOne.
A court hearing on the case was scheduled for March 2.
But according to what Alex Gerszewski, public information officer for the Oklahoma Department of Corrections told NewsOne, Holtzclaw IS in the system. Adding that he was entered there after his conviction, but quickly removed for his protection.
“We’re giving them our word that he is in the system,” he said. “We know where he is, but we are not giving up his location for his safety.”
