Raiders Linebacker McClain Sentenced To 180 Days In Jail

DECATUR, Ala. (AP) – Oakland Raiders linebacker Rolando McClain has been sentenced to 180 days in jail for assault and other charges stemming from a November fight in his hometown.

Decatur Municipal Judge Bill Cook convicted the 22-year-old former Alabama star Thursday of third-degree assault, menacing, reckless endangerment and discharging a firearm in the city limits. He fined McClain $2,000.

Attorney Harvey Steinberg says he plans to appeal McClain’s conviction.

McClain, 6-foot-3 and 255 pounds, and Jarodiaus Willingham were charged with assaulting Rishard Tapscott, who was a friend of the two, on Nov. 30, 2011. McClain allegedly pointed a gun at Tapscott’s head and threatened to kill him before firing it beside his ear.

Willingham, 23 of Decatur, pleaded guilty to third-degree assault in the case Thursday morning. He received a 90-day jail sentence.
