I am a staunch supporter/advocate for the innocence of Daniel Holtzclaw, former Plainsmen star football player. 

Daniel is the Oklahoma City police officer accused and convicted of sexual assaults on women in the Northeast OKC area. Of the 13 women and 36 charges, he was convicted on 18 charges (eight women’s charges).

Brian Bates maintains www.holtzclawtrial.com where you can read accurate information regarding Daniel’s case. Brian writes, “Daniel Holtzclaw’s appellate attorney was granted a final extension to file Daniel’s appeal. Daniel’s appeal is now due on or before Feb. 1, 2017. Daniel is being held in an undisclosed prison facility. Daniel is doing well, is not isolated from other inmates and speaks with his family and myself on a regular basis.”

In a recent letter to the growing number of supporters of his innocence, Daniel writes, “I wanted to express my gratitude for all the support given to my family and myself. Throughout this nightmare, there have been several negative times/moments that have occurred.

Through those times, I’ve been uplifted by your guys’ support. All of your support means so much to me. I don’t really want to focus on the negatives, but I do want to make the point that it’s incredibly hard, even to the point where I can’t even articulate how hard it is. With that said, I wouldn’t be where I am mentally if it wasn’t for all of you! I mean that with all my heart.

I’m excited about the news of the ‘Michelle Malkin Investigates’ show (coming in December, a two-part series on CRTV.com) about my wrongful conviction that I’m sure will motivate and inspire you guys as it does for me!

Thank you so much! With all my heart & gratitude, Daniel Holtzclaw.”
