Listen to Ex-Cop's Rape Victims Tell Their Stories
Yesterday, former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw was convicted of 18 of the 36 counts brought against him in connection to sexually assaulting 13 woman. Today, two of his victims spoke publicly. Jannie Logins was the first woman to report the assault, leading into an investigation in which 12 other women brought sexual assault charges against Holtzclaw. "He just picked the wrong lady to stop that night," Logins said.

During the press conference Logins described the brutal attack. "Only thing I could see was my life flash before my eyes, and the gun in the holster on his right side," she said. Logins was sexually assaulted by Holtzclaw when he pulled her over for a traffic violation.

Sharday Hill also spoke about being attacked. Hill was sexually assaulted by Holtzclaw while handcuffed to a hospital bed. "I felt like I was in survival mode so I had to do what he was making me do," she said about the attack.

Holtzclaw's victims were all black women, many coming from low-income neighborhoods and having criminal records or drug addictions. Civil rights attorney Benjamin Crump said Holtzclaw picked his victims purposefully.

"It wasn't coincidence who he chose to violate, it was methodical and it was deliberate," Crump said as he stood with the victims. "Some might not consider them model citizens, but they were citizens. They were Americans, and their lives mattered."

The jury recommended Holtzclaw serve a total of 263 years in prison. A judge will later decide if he will have to serve the sentences consecutively.
