Season One: The most in-depth serialized look into the case of the State of Oklahoma vs. Daniel Holtzclaw, as told from the perspective of the prosecution, but with the scrutiny of the defense. On his 30th birthday, Oklahoma City police officer Daniel Holtzclaw was convicted of sexually assaulting multiple women he came into contact with while on patrol. But the story doesn't end there. 36 alleged crimes, 13 alleged victims and 17 alleged crime scenes. Not a single piece of direct forensic evidence and not a single independent witness. Was Holtzclaw's 263 year prison sentence "Justice Served" or "Justice Denied"?

Something happened to these women

On episode 8 and while I’m not 100% sure the alleged officer is to blame for all accusations, I 100% believe these women were assaulted and violated by police. It’s absolutely tragic what has happened to these women and my heart goes out to each of them.

THIS is real True Crime Podcasting

Been a longtime true crime podcast fan. Lately I was feeling blah though. Nothing I listened to was anything more than some host spending 30 minutes on a wikipedia and then regurgitating it on their podcast. Reminds me of what the local news has become. But not Brian Bates and Bates Investigates. This is as true to true crime as you can get. Tons of detail without boring the listener. He even says something to the effect that he is going to present the prosecution's theories but do it with the criticism of the defense. I may not agree with all of Bates' theories, but I'll be damned if I can find any misrepresentations. 5 stars all the way.
