San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith received concurrent 12-day jail sentences for weapons and DUI charges, reports Damian Trujillo of KNTV Bay Area. Smith can serve the 12 days on a work release program instead of serving jail time. 

According to Tracey Kaplan of the San Jose Mercury News, Smith will receive credit for one day served. He will serve the remaining 11 days by participating in work crews on Mondays, starting July 28. Smith will also be on three years of probation, will serve 235 hours of community service and pay a $2,000 fine. 

The NFL will now review Smith's case under its Personal Conduct Policy. A suspension is possible. 

Smith, 24, originally faced a July 25 court date after pleading no contest in May to three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

Smith was also arrested in September 2013 on suspicion of DUI charges and was admitted into rehab after deciding to take a leave of absence from football.

In April, Smith was taken into custody at Los Angeles Airport for reportedly making a fake bomb threat. No charges were filed.

Smith, 24, played in 11 games for the 49ers last season, recording 34 total tackles and 8.5 sacks. San Francisco drafted him in the first round out of Missouri in 2011.
