Rolando McClain Update: Oakland Raiders LB Ordered To Stand Trial May 17

Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain will stand trial beginning May 17 in Decatur, Alabama for his alleged involvement in an attack on an individual in late November. McClain and Jerradius Willingham are the two defendants in this case. McClain is charged with third degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm within city limits.

All of the charges are misdemeanors, but there is a chance for jail time. For the NFL and Raiders purposes, there is also a chance for a potential suspension and possible waiving from the team. The NFL has held off on whether to suspend McClain but always reserves the right to do so in the future. The Raiders conducted their own investigation into the incident and believe there are details that contradict the evidence in question.

At the time, head coach Hue Jackson indicated if McClain lied to the team there would be repercussions. The front office and coaching staff have all changed since the incident, but one would imagine McClain is not out of the woods yet with the team. We'll get a better idea of the situation in May.
