A judge in Alabama found [su_lightbox src=”http://www.al.com/news/index.ssf/2014/07/former_alabama_star_rolando_mc.html”]Rolando McClain guilty[/su_lightbox] on both misdemeanor charges earlier today, from an incident that occurred in Decatur, Alabama in 2013.
McClain's sentence is for 18 days in jail for saying “F#@! the police” and jerking away from an officer who came up from behind him. McClain left a small scratch on the pinky finger of one officer.
McClain's attorney had this to say after sentencing:
[pull_quote_center]I felt like I ran into the only person in the entire state of Alabama who would convict him on this evidence[/pull_quote_center]
I felt that if McClain was found guilty, and had to serve jail time, a lot of the reasoning would be because this is the third incident in 17 months for McClain. That indeed looks to be the case. The report also states the sentencing is being appealed by McClain's attorney.
