Default Re: Aldon Smith DUI

here is where his REAL problem is....
Quote:
The DA's office said that Smith is expected to surrender later this month. If convicted, Smith could face up to four years and four months in jail.

“The preamble to the assault weapons law states that each assault weapon ‘has such a high rate of fire and capacity for firepower that its function as a legitimate sports or recreational firearm is substantially outweighed by the danger that it can be used to kill and injure human beings,'" district attorney Jeff Rosen said in a statement. “California's prohibition of these powerful weapons is not about
hunting or target practice. It is about interrupting the long history of death, carnage and grief assault weapons have inflicted on California communities.”

The DA says that during the party, Smith fired his .45 handgun twice from his balcony to "dissipate the crowd." The DA also says one of Smith's friends also fired that same handgun "several times" in the air.

From the DA press release:

Following the shooting, the Santa Clara County Sheriff's Department searched Smith's residence for evidence related to the assaults. As part of that search, Sheriff's investigators recovered two rifles from Smith's bedroom, including an Armalite AR10-T .308 caliber rifle. In a second search two weeks later, Sheriff's investigators recovered three additional firearms from Smith's bedroom and closet, including a Bushmaster ACR rifle chambered for 5.56mm NATO and a Bushmaster Carbon-15 .223 caliber rifle. None of the five weapons were registered with the California Department of Justice. Sheriff's investigators documented several additional large-capacity magazines strewn about the floor of Smith's bedroom. Ammunition in several calibers -- both expended and unexpended -- was found in Smith's bedside table.
