Our client was charged with several counts of sexual assault and the jury found him not guilty of one charge, and hung on the others. He was released from custody after pleading guilty to a single count of a non sexual crime and guaranteed probation.

  • After more than a week of testimony and 2½ days of deliberation, jurors acquitted McClinton on one of the sexual assault charges and said they were deadlocked on seven other counts.
