Judge in case of Oklahoma ex-officer charged with rape says jury asked about instructions.

OKLAHOMA CITY – A jury considering the fate of a former Oklahoma City police officer charged with raping and sexually victimizing 13 women has inquired about their instructions, but offered few clues into their deliberations, which were in their third day Wednesday. Oklahoma County District Judge Timothy Henderson declined to elaborate on the nature of the jurors’ questions while deliberations continue, but said such questions are not unusual. Henderson spent more than an hour on Monday giving jurors instructions on the 36 counts against former police officer Daniel Holtzclaw that include rape, sexual battery, forcible oral sodomy and indecent exposure.

The charges involve 13 women who accuse the officer of sexually victimizing them in the low-income neighborhoods he patrolled on the city’s northeast side.
