A Greenville man has been sentenced to life in prison for child sex crimes.

Dadrian Montez McClain, 27, received his sentence Tuesday after a hearing wherein 354th District Court Judge Keli Aiken revoked his probation for the aggravated sexual assault of a child.

He was charged by a Hunt County grand jury in June 2017, which indicated he had sexually assaulted a child under the age of 14. He pleaded guilty in November 2017, and was given 10 years deferred adjudication probation with a $500 fine, 180 days jail time and 120 hours of community service. He was also required to register as a sex offender.


A motion was filed on June 1 seeking to revoke his probation, alleging he failed to comply with sex offender registration.

  1. I am outraged to see this life sentence. So, you are telling me that just because he failed to register as a sex offender you give him life. I am not saying that aggravated sexual assault on a minor is something that should be overlooked by far. I am stating in this particular case did anyone even consider the facts here especially the Judge. This young man has been failed to the judicial system as most young black men have. Why because we lack the means to hire a good lawyer to fight this case and the knowledge needed to be treated as a human instead of a statistic. Did she even consider the loss that the mother will endure. There are so many things that should have been done different in this case but yet again it is overlooked because the headline reads child sex crimes and that is what is stuck in the head of many that will see this not the actual facts. I hate the way media portrays people. I am sure this vent will fall on deaf ears as have so many cases but still I could not let my voice be heard.

    • He should have been given a life sentence for assault in the first place. He wasn’t failed by the judicial system; we were, and especially the young victim. You can blame his upbringing and/or his guardians for not teaching him right from wrong. I don’t blame them though. What rock was he under to think what he did was okay to do.

    • He pled “GUILTY,” and was convicted. He took a deal for 10 years’ probation. He failed to comply with terms of his probation and the judge took a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to give this animal what he had coming to him. Sex assault cases, especially against children, often wind up with a probated sentence. Why? Because the victims are CHILDREN, and their parents don’t want them traumatized in court. So, the DA does the best he can, and makes a plea deal for probation. Then, along comes a case to restore one’s faith in the Almighty: A sexual predator fails to register and hands his life over to the judge on a silver platter. There is no racism to it; just a complete lack of personal responsibility.
