The Latest: Rape case against ex-Oklahoma cop to go to jury

By The Associated Press

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The latest on the trial of a former police officer in Oklahoma City who has been accused by 13 women of rape or sexual assault (all times are local):

6:15 a.m.

Lawyers are preparing to present closing arguments in the case of a former police officer in Oklahoma City accused of raping or sexually victimizing 13 women.

Daniel Holtzclaw is accused of 36 counts of rape, sexual battery and other charges that carry a possible sentence of life in prison. A jury could begin deliberating Monday.

During a monthlong trial, jurors heard from 13 women who alleged Holtzclaw preyed on them during traffic stops or in other instances while wearing his uniform and badge. The 28-year-old Holtzclaw was fired after his arrest last year.

Holtzclaw's attorney attacked the credibility of the women and questioned why most didn't come forward until police identified them as possible victims. Several have drug addictions or criminal records.

Holtzclaw didn't take the stand.
