“I didn’t do anything wrong. One day after Daniel Holtzclaw was convicted of several sex crimes, including rape, two of the 13 women who said they were victimized by him discussed their violent encounters with the former Oklahoma City police officer. “I was out there alone and helpless, didn’t know what to do,” Jannie Ligons told reporters in Oklahoma, as she recounted what happened after a traffic stop with Holtzclaw. “And in my mind, all I could think was that he was going to shoot me, he was going to kill me.” Holtzclaw on Thursday was found guilty of 18 of the 36 counts he was facing — including four separate counts of first-degree rape. The verdicts came down on Holtzclaw’s 29th birthday; he sobbed in court as they were read and now faces the possibility of spending the rest of his life in prison. I felt like I was in survival mode, so I had to do what he was making me do.” Holtzclaw is accused of stopping women — some as they walked through neighborhoods — and threatening them with arrest. They included a teenager who testified that she had been raped on the front porch of her mother’s house, and a woman who said Holtzclaw left his gun belt on during the assault.
