Former Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw was sentenced to 263 years in prison for his serial rape of 12 Black women and one underaged girl.
In December, Holtzclaw was convicted of five counts of rape and 13 other counts of sexual assault. At that time, the jury recommended a 263 year sentence.
Just before the judge delivered the sentence, Holtzclaw's victims provided impact statements to the court.
Cameras were not allowed inside of the courtroom for sentencing.
