Aldon Smith of the San Francisco 49ers is due in court April 11 related to the two criminal complaints he is facing.
According to CSNBayArea.com, Smith was not in court on Thursday, but a Santa Clara County judge set the April 11 date for discovery related to his September arrest on suspicion of DUI and charges filed in October for felony possession of assault weapons related to a house party he hosted in June 2012.
The 24-year-old Smith had 8.5 sacks in 11 games last season, missing five games while undergoing treatment after his arrest in September. He also had 34 tackles.
He was an All-Pro in 2012 after getting 19.5 sacks, breaking Fred Dean’s single-season franchise record of 17.5 in the process. As a rookie in 2011, Smith had 14 sacks, including a safety, and has 42 sacks in just 43 career games.
Smith was the seventh overall pick by the 49ers out of Missouri in 2011, where he had 14.5 sacks in two seasons.
