Daniel Holtzclaw wept in the courtroom and on his way to the elevator out of the Oklahoma County courthouse. Holtzclaw was found guilty Thursday night on 18 of 36 counts.

The jury had deliberated those counts since Monday evening in a trial that began in early November.

As our Kyle Schwab and Nolan Clay reported, Holtzclaw, of Oklahoma City, was charged with 36 counts that accused him of sexually assaulting 13 black females between December 2013 and June 2014 while a police officer. Holtzclaw was fired in January.

Outside the courtroom, the hallways were quiet and empty, aside from the local media and a few members of the community. Outside the courthouse, not many protestors remained as the verdict was read around 8:30 pm.
