Man pleads no contest to charges of stabbing Aldon Smith


49ers linebacker Aldon Smith entered a no contest plea last month to weapons charges stemming from a party at his home in 2012 at which two people were shot.

Smith was also stabbed at that party and the man who did it faces three years in prison after pleading no contest to charges related to the incident last week. Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Charles Gillingham said, via the Associated Press, that Steven Barba entered those pleas on charges of assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a gun.

According to Gillingham, Barba stabbed Smith twice as the linebacker was trying to get the crowd to disperse as things got out of hand at the party. He is scheduled to be sentenced on July 15.

Smith also pleaded no contest to DUI charges last month and awaits sentencing on both fronts. He also faces likely discipline from the NFL as a result of his repeated run-ins with law enforcement.
