OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — A judge says a former Oklahoma police officer should spend the rest of his life in prison, for raping and sexually victimizing women while on patrol in a low-income neighborhood of Oklahoma City.

A jury had recommended that Daniel Holtzclaw spend 263 years in prison. And the judge today agreed, saying Holtzclaw will serve those years consecutively.

Prosecutors said Holtzclaw, who is half-white and half Japanese, had targeted black women while on patrol.
