Just got a phone call, seems the first trial in over a year in McLennan County has ended in a “not guilty” verdict, after a two day trial. It was a stabbing case and the newly freed defendant was in jail for over 800 days. Sounds like the jury thought the guy had been punished enough.

George McClain, a part-time construction worker, is charged with stabbing his longtime friend, Terry Bernard, in the chest with a pocket knife on Jan. 24, 2019. The two were fighting over a woman, but McClain, who went to Bernard’s house in the 500 block of Orchard Lane, could have a valid self-defense claim, his defense attorney said.

Bernard, who picked up a brick and told McClain to drop the knife, suffered a punctured left lung in the incident, according to court records.

McClain, who is not eligible for probation, faces from two to 20 years in prison on the second-degree felony. Court records show McClain has a felony conviction for burglary of a building and two misdemeanor convictions for possession of marijuana.

George McClain, just spent 816 days in jail for stabbing his buddy with a pocket knife, think he looked mad and tired of it all going in from his booking pic below, wonder what he looks like now? Hmmm.

George “Boy, do I need a joint now” McClain, poor guy omg.

  1. I realize that what I’m about to say is not
    relevant to this particular blog post. And you will write about it.
    However, I’m not going back and reading anything else. I’m done occasionally looking at this . It’s not healthy for me. I have a publisher, so I am still writing a book, and there will be a chapter or two regarding you. It will be truthful. You see, you know nothing about my life. You obviously don’t know me at all. For the last five years, I’ve been sick , and obviously too proud and stubborn to really admit it. I blame myself, can’t forgive myself, and a few others , and it’s destroying me.
    No matter what happens in my future, I’ve got to try my best to forgive myself. The panic attacks and anxiety are destroying me. I am so blessed with people in my life that love me unconditionally…..my kids, John, my new grandbaby, and loyal, loving friends.
    Reading lies about me certainly isn’t healthy for my mental state . So I won’t be coming back to this blog.
    I hope you get the help that you desperately need.
    I have felt badly after I lost it, and wrote ugly things . They were true, but still not right. i went berserk and acted like you. I don’t want to be like you .
    Therefore , I apologize for my behavior. I also hope you find the peace that you obviously need.
    I am trying to find peace also.
    Go ahead and write your story about this . I won’t be seeing it.
