An Oklahoma City police officer has been convicted of raping and sexually assaulting black women in the poor area he worked in.

Daniel Holtzclaw, age 29, stopped the women while out on patrol, searched them and then forced himself upon them, according to a report by BBC News.

Holtzclaw was convicted of assaults on eight victims, including a grandmother in her 50s and a 17-year-old.

The jury recommended a prison term totalling 263 years. He is due to be sentenced in January.
