The Official Aldon Smith Thread

I am waiting for this turd to screw up again. Such a waste of talent if he continues to go down this path. The dui is a much worse issue than the weapons stuff. There are rules we all follow and there are some that think they can get away with it or the rules don't really apply to them in the same manner as everybody else.
Those weapons charges are b******t.

Power gonna do what power do. He probably wont see any jail time. The case definitely wont be resolved until at least the start of the new year.

Smith is out on $75,000 bail. You go to a bail bondsman and you pay 10% and you are out.

The only way that you are still in jail is if you can not come up with the 10%.

I was stuck in Greystone for one week on a $50,000 bail, but got out when friends of mine put up the cash.
I was willing to wait for a bail reduction hearing, but they insisted on getting me out.
aldon smith= dpoty
I want to see situations where we have Lemonier, Aldon, Tank Carradine, Ahmad Brooks, Justin Smith, and Navorro Bowman all coming after the qb. No way offensive lines are going to be able to block all them dudes.
the weapons charges have been reduced to misdemeanors by the DA anyway...

This.

This crap about "if it were me I'd still be in jail" is total BS. People who say this don't know how this works.

Aldon surrendered himself and posted bail just like anyone else would.

The truth tho is that Aldon likely never would have been charged with teh Gun possession charge if he weren't a public figure and there wasn't heat on the DA.

When were the charges reduced?

Aldon just posted $75,000 bail and that would unheard of for misdemeanor charges.

Do you have a link?
$75,000 bail? Yeah, if it were me, I'd still be in jail.

There's no way I could afford that.

If you can not come up with 10% ($7,500), you would still be in jail. That is true and it does happen.

But if you have lived in a community for a time, have a job, and no serious criminal history, you would normally be released on OR--own recognizance.

I reckon the DUI will stick this time. Since his last go round did not result in a DUI being recorded on his record, this will be his 'first.' That means, a mandatory 96 hours in jail. Now...perhaps even that gets waived in light of his voluntary rehab. Who knows? What is relevant (to the team), is that this will not be a distraction during this season or next.

As far as the weapons charges go...I believe those are going to go bye bye. I think it's been referenced in here before, but this article really puts the charges in perspective. http://www.ajc.com/feed/sports/dubious-felony-weapons-charges-act-as-leverage/fWJth/

Let's just hope he has learned his lesson and matured some from this experience!

I don't know anyone who has spent 96 hours in jail after a DUI. When my best friend got his it was about 1am and I picked him up at the jail around noon the next day.
