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 29th 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"?
