McClain, 63, is accused of rape, gross sexual imposition, attempted gross sexual imposition and child endangering. According to McClain’s indictment, the alleged incidents took place between April 2017 and November 2018 and involved three children who were all under the age of 13 when the incidents allegedly happened.
It’s not clear where specifically the alleged acts took place, aside from they happened in Champaign County. It’s also not clear what exactly happened between McClain and the alleged victims.
At a previous hearing before a magistrate on Dec. 20, McClain was released on his own recognizance and placed on house arrest with an electronic ankle monitor. He was also granted permission to attend doctors’ appointments and church, but as a condition of his release he isn’t allowed to have contact with any of the three alleged victims listed in the indictment.

A family member of one of the alleged victims told the Springfield News-Sun after the Dec. 20 hearing that the freedoms allowed by the court at that time were too loose. They are not being identified to protect the identities of the alleged victims.
The documents from the most recent hearing show that the defense also asked the court to remove McClain’s ankle monitor, but that request was denied.
McClain’s trial date is set for March 12.
