The Official Aldon Smith Thread

I have never posted bail without charges being filed.

I have released within 72 hours when no charges were filed and I did not post bail.

Somebody who makes over 500k a year, isnt gonna sit in county lock up even for 72 hours, if they can just drop 20k(which they get back), and go home.

OK. I have never made that much money.

Do you think he put 20K in cash or paid a just paid the bail bondsman?
I doubt he put up 20K in cash--but I have never been rich.

We should find out what is going to happen in LA soon.

Well technical violations without intent usually are fines vs imprisonment. Given the facts currently known, I'd bet on something below a misdemeanor. It might involve community service and probation, but I'd be very surprised if it involved actual jail time.

And if Aldon's agent/lawyer team are really smart they try to come up with a way that his community service would be him being a TSA airport screener for a day. Aldon apologizes makes fun of himself and the situation and turns a negative to a positive.

I think both cases have been combined if I'm not mistaken.
How can you combine two cases that happened at different times and were unrelated?

I would think the conduct rule is where Goodell will base any ruling on. If there is no felony and only a misdemeanor or two - I'd say he might not even get suspended. His conduct at LA X doesn't really seem to be detrimental to the reputation of the NFL. Actually I think it humanizes them. The dui and guns - if the are misdemeanors might result in a suspenzion. But I don't see it being more than a game or two, in my opinion.

What charge is below a misdemeanor in a criminal case?

I think, but I am not a lawyer, there are two options in a criminal case; felony and misdemeanor.

Am I mistaken again?

No, your right. I'm pretty sure they aren't going to be able to charge him with anything because he was allowed to enter secured area after supposedly stating he had a bomb; if he really did have a bomb everyone in the airport would have been at risk and all we would be talking about is how stupid that TSA agent was for allowing him to enter the airport with a bomb.

He put up the whole 20k, why waste $1400-2000.

When do the 49ers have to pick up his option or not? Once they do (if they do), he'll have a lot more resources to fight these charges.

Aldon Smith was facing a misdemeanor or a felony charge in Los Angles--infractions have nothing to do with LA case against Aldon Smith.


An infraction is not a criminal offense. Infractions are petty offenses that are punishable by small fines only and cannot result in a jail or prison sentence.

There is no right to a jury trial in the case of an infraction. In a criminal case the accused has a right to a jury trial.

The most common infractions are violations of traffic laws and not covered by the penal code.
But, there are some traffic violations that can be misdemeanors or felonies.

He is only facing a misdermeanor as max in LA, if even charged at all, i put up the "infraction" because somebody asked what is less then a misdermeanor!!!

I raised the question about what was below a misdemeanor in a criminal case.

I said that I was not sure, but I thought in criminal cases there were felonies and misdemeanors.

I still think that is true.

Now, if Aldon could be charged with an infraction, that would be great--definitely better than a misdemeanor.



By the way, how do you know he paid in cash.

He could have paid a bail bondsman because it was faster and more convenient.
