Thirty-one-year-old Blake Partain entered a guilty plea today in a Trinity County Courtroom for Intoxication Manslaughter and was sentenced to twelve years in TDCJ. As a condition of his guilty plea, Mr. Partain waived the right to appeal and was immediately taken into Custody. On March 7, 2021, Partain was the driver of a 2008 Dodge Pickup that was involved in a single-vehicle crash on FM-357 which caused the death of Chelsea Renae McBride. The family of Chelsea McBride worked very closely with the District Attorney’s office in reaching this plea agreement. The mother and father of Ms. McBride gave emotional victim impact statements in Court. I ask that any comments regarding this case be respectful to the McBride Family.
