A judge on Thursday sentenced Daniel Holtzclaw, the former Oklahoma City police officer convicted of raping and sexually assaulting eight different women while on duty, to 263 years in prison – a resounding win for his victims, who had called for Holtzclaw to spend the maximum number of years behind bars. On 10 December, after 45 hours of deliberation, an all-white jury convicted Holtzclaw, 29, of assaulting eight of the women.

The jury also recommended Holtzclaw serve 263 years in prison.
