San Francisco 49ers: Aldon Smith Won’t Face Charges From LAX Episode

Aldon Smith’s legals future has become slightly less murky.

The San Francisco 49ers outside linebacker won’t face any criminal charges stemming from an alleged bomb threat he made at Los Angeles International Airport in April, according to a report from Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com.

However, the embattled Smith isn’t off the legal hook just yet.

The 24-year-old still faces three felony weapons charges, two misdemeanor DUI charges and one additional misdemeanor. Smith is scheduled to be sentenced on those counts on July 25 just two days after the 49ers open up training camp.

Head coach Jim Harbaugh wouldn’t provide a definitive answer when asked recently if he expects Smith to take part in training camp.

“That’s to be determined.”

Smith could end up receiving a sentence of up to four years and four months for his pending charges. According to a “source” who spoke with Mike Florio of ProFootBallTalk.com, Smith “likely” won’t end up with any jail time. A suspension, however, appears inevitable.

On the potential of receiving a ban, Smith told Maiocco: “I can’t control that. I’m focused on staying focused.”

 

Note: The 49ers have announced that the team has solid out its opening season Levi’s Stadium. Only standing room tickets remain available
