Ex-Oklahoma officer charged with sex assaults back in jail

Daniel Holtzclaw

A former Oklahoma City police officer charged with sexually assaulting women while on duty has been ordered to serve 15 days in jail for violating terms of his bond.

Enid native Daniel Holtzclaw was taken into custody following a hearing Monday in Oklahoma County District Court.

Defense attorney Scott Adams says Holtzclaw failed to keep the battery charged on an ankle monitor he's required to wear, allowing the monitor to go dead for several hours. Adams says Holtzclaw reported the incident and called it "a lapse of judgment," but noted Holtzclaw is on zero tolerance for violations.

Holtzclaw has pleaded not guilty to 36 charges that include rape, forcible sodomy, stalking and indecent exposure for alleged sexual assaults that occurred while he was on duty. The charges involve 13 women.

He was fired by the department in January. His trial has been set for Oct. 26. Holtzclaw has been free on bond but was under house arrest at his parents' home in Enid.
