Rolando McClain Trial: Co-Defendant To Testify Against Raiders Linebacker

According to a report from WHNT 19 Oakland Raiders LB Rolando McClain is set to stand trial in Decatur Municipal Court. But his co-defendant, Jaradious Willingham, has pleaded guilty to his charges and has agreed to testify against McClain.

Willingham pleaded guilty to third-degree assault. Municipal Judge Billy Cook sentenced him to 90 days in jail. Willingham must also pay about $300 in fines.

The judge then cleared the courtroom of other witnesses so the trial could begin.

McClain and Willingham will stand trial on charges stemming from an attack on November 30, 2011 in the Decatur area. Rolando had no comments when arriving at court this morning, nor did his attorney, Harvey Steinberg. McClain is charged with assault, reckless endangerment, menacing, and wrongful discharge of a firearm related to the incident, as well as a traffic violation last May.

McClain played football for Decatur High School as well as the University of Alabama.
