Investigative Timeline - August 5, 2014: This episode reflects back on Episode 8 and the telephone and in-person interviews conducted by Oklahoma City Sex Crimes Detective Kim Davis with Daniel Holtzclaw accuser Sherry Ellis.
Ellis alleges she was stopped by Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw, in the early morning hours of May 7, 2014, near NE 17th and N. Highland Dr. and forced to perform oral sex. She says she was then transported a couple of blocks away and vaginally raped in a public park, before being told to "have a nice night" as the officer drove away.
But, there's some significant problems with Ellis' allegations. For one, she describes her attacker as a "short, black, male police officer." Daniel Holtzclaw is 6' 2" tall and pale white in complexion. Ellis also claims the officer who attacker her was driving a different model of patrol car than Holtzclaw was actually driving.
Then there's his patrol car GPS. While it places him in the area, host Brian Bates explains why it would be impossible for Holtzclaw's patrol car to be where prosecutors insist the rape took place.
Listen to all the facts and decide for yourself, was justice served, or was justice denied?
