An investigation that began after Jannie Ligons, a 57-year-old grandmother, is pulled over at 2am and allegedly sexually assaulted. Within hours of her complaint, up to 20 employees of the Oklahoma City Police Department are all actively following up on leads and gathering evidence. Very quickly officer Holtzclaw is identified as their prime suspect. Sex Crimes Detectives Kim Davis and Rocky Gregory take over there case. Det.

A surveillance video of the traffic stop is located and officer Holtzclaw is confronted and taken to headquarters for questioning.
