49ers' Aldon Smith sentenced, gets probation, felonies lowered to misdemeanors

San Francsico 49ers’ Aldon Smith had his sentencing hearing moved up to Friday, catching some off guard. Smith opened the hearing by apologizing for his actions to the judge, according to Tracey Kalan.

All in all, it sounds like Smith came out of the ordeal with favorable sentencing after pleading no contest in May. The judge lowered his gun felony charges to misdemeanors.

In regards to his DUI charge, he got court probation for three years with 12 days in county jail, getting one day of credit. He won’t actually have to spend that time in jail though, getting the option of serving on Mondays with the work crew starting July 28. Ultimately, Smith will serve 11 days on a work crew starting July 28.

Interestingly enough, the 11th Monday he’d spend on work crew would come just one week before they appear on Monday Night Football for the only time during the 2014 season, when they play the St. Louis Rams on October 13th.

Smith gets the same sentence for the misdemeanor gun charges, and that sentence will run concurrently with the DUI charges. Smith will also have to complete 235 hours of community service, was slapped with a $2,000 punitive fine and Smith can’t possess guns or ammunition for the three years that he is on probation.

And it looks like the 49ers’ training camp was not the reason for the hearing to be moved up.
