Aldon Smith Pleads Not Guilty to Domestic Violence Charges

Sean Smith

Former Oakland Raiders linebacker Aldon Smith pleaded not guilty to charges of domestic violence, assault, false imprisonment and vandalism, TMZ Sports reported Monday. Fenno reports Smith will plead guilty to the charge and accept one year of jail time along with three years of probation.

Smith, who played in 29 games (23 starts) in two seasons with the Raiders, had four interceptions for Oakland and is the second high-priced veteran cornerback released by the Raiders this offseason, joining David Amerson, who was released last month.

Attorney Jonathan Dennis said Woods "felt the sentence, obviously, was not as strict as it should have been, but he's pleased he's admitting guilt". While under contract with Oakland in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, he hadn't appeared in a regular-season game since 2015. But he never played up to that level and the Raiders have chose to cut him instead of paying him $8.5 million this year. He allowed opposing quarterbacks to post a 116.5 passer rating when targeting him in 2016, according to SportRadar. Smith was benched early in his Raiders career and failed to lock down a cornerback position that has since been given to last year's first round rookie, Gareon Conley. Getting released from the Raiders didn't really change that much about his career: He has been banned from playing since the suspension.
