Oklahoma law enforcement seems to have something of a sexual assault problem. On Tuesday, Tulsa County Deputy Gerald Nuckolls, 26, was arrested amid accusations that he sexually assaulted two women while on duty. Though Nuckolls hasn’t been formally charged yet, authorities say he admitted to coercing some six other women into sexual acts.
On Monday, the Oklahoma Highway Patrol arrested state trooper Eric Roberts, 42, on complaints that he kidnapped and sexually assaulted three women while on duty. The department began investigating Roberts in July after a woman reported being pulled over by Roberts and then raped.
And in August, Oklahoma City officer Daniel Ken Holtzclaw, 27, was charged with raping or sexually abusing seven people. The alleged victims, all black women, say Holtzlcaw forced them to expose themselves, perform oral sex on him, or have intercourse with him in order to avoid arrest.
