Aldon Smith agrees to plea deal in domestic violence case

Former 49ers and Raiders defensive end Aldon Smith reached a plea deal Monday in San Francisco for two misdemeanor charges stemming from a domestic violence incident in March.

According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Smith pleaded no contest to violating a court order and false imprisonment. He was sentenced to 90 days in jail and three years of probation but can serve his time at a drug and alcohol treatment facility given his history of substance abuse.

Smith will also be required to attend 52 weeks of domestic violence counseling and complete 25 hours of community service.

Smith was arraigned in April on three charges of violating a protective order stemming from a March 3 incident with his fiancée in which he was accused of beating her and biting her on her wrists. He turned himself in on March 23 but failed to make his court appearance.

Smith, 29, was selected by San Francisco with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft and signed with Oakland in 2015 following his release from the Niners. He was then cut by the Raiders in March after details of his domestic violence incident emerged.

He hasn’t played in the NFL since 2015 after being suspended in August of that year for violating the NFL Policy and Program for Substances of Abuse.
