Late last year, Daniel Holtzclaw had been accused of raping women and forcing them to perform other sexual acts by multiple women. After months of delegation, he was found guilty of 18 out of 36 counts of first degree rape and forced oral sodomy, the courts sentenced him to serve 263 years in prison for the crimes he committed while on the job.
Vinelink, whose banner on the homepage of their website reads, "Victims have a right to know" has removed information on Holtzclaw, giving no explanation as to why. This is the same website that boasts "providing victims and concerned citizens with the power of information... allowing people to have the sense of security that they deserve." The 13 victims who came forward to testify against Holtzclaw, have no way of tracking their rapist.
The last time any information was available to the public Holtzclaw, was January 26th, 2016. At the time, victims and other civilians could use Vinelink or ODOC to get a full profile of the former police officer and his crimes.
Now, for over a month, the database has no information on the ex-cop. When Oklahoma City new station KFOR, asked about the missing information on their database, ODOC spokesperson Terri Watkins said, “We are not going to comment, it is a matter of security.”
As of March 2, 2016, no information can be found on Daniel Holtzclaw in either databases.
