San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith’s sentencing hearing has been moved up a week and will take place today at 1:30 p.m. in Santa Clara Superior Court, according to court records.
On May 21, Smith changed his pleas to “no contest” on three felony weapons charges, two misdemeanor DUI counts, as well as another count for a license plate switch on the vehicle used during the DUI. The two DUI counts consist of the basic DUI, as well as having a blood-alcohol level of nearly twice the legal limit.
Judge Daniel Nishigaya has the discretion to sentence Smith to probation with no jail time to four years and four months in jail.
Smith is scheduled to report to 49ers training camp on Wednesday with the rest of the team’s veteran players.
