OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Attorneys for a former Oklahoma City police officer convicted of sexually assaulting women while on duty are again asking for an extension to file his appeal.

This is the fourth time attorneys for 29-year-old Daniel Holtzclaw said they need more time. The attorneys say the time is needed because of the lengthy record in the case and noted that the trial took more than six weeks to complete.

Holtzclaw was convicted in December on 18 felony charges involving eight of 13 women who alleged he assaulted them.

He was sentenced to 263 years in prison.

The Associated Press highlighted Holtzclaw’s case as part of a yearlong investigation into sexual misconduct by law enforcement.
