OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An Oct. 26 trial date is set for a former Oklahoma City police officer on dozens of charges he sexually assaulted 13 women while on duty.

Oklahoma County District Judge Timothy Henderson set the trial date Wednesday for Daniel Holtzclaw, who faces a total of 36 charges that include six counts of first-degree rape. The rape charges carry a sentence of up to life in prison. Holtzclaw has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

Holtzclaw was ordered to stand trial in November following a hearing at which his accusers gave graphic testimony about sex acts they said they did not want to perform but did so because they were frightened.

Holtzclaw, who had been with the department for three years, was fired from the police force in January.
