    DH)--A judge has ordered Daniel Holtzclaw to serve 15 days in the Oklahoma County Jail for a recent bond violation. Holtzclaw, who is from Enid, is accused of sexually assaulting women while on duty as an Oklahoma City police officer. He was fired from the police department following his arrest and an internal investigation. Meanwhile, Holtzclaw is out of jail on bond with several restrictions. He is on house arrest and required to wear a GPS monitoring device. According to News9, court records state Holtzclaw did not charge the battery on his GPS monitoring device. As a result, the device did not monitor his activity on July 19 from 12:20 a.m. until 7:00 a.m. Although he immediately reported the violation, the judge said it's something the court takes seriously. Holtzclaw was taken into custody immediately following the court hearing. This is the second time Holtzclaw has violated the conditions of his bond. He is accused of assaulting 13 women and is set for trial in October on 36 crimes, including six counts of first-degree rape. If convicted, Holtzclaw faces a maximum sentence of life in prison.
