SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith has pleaded no contest to three felony weapons charges and two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

The 24-year-old Smith entered his plea Wednesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court.

Prosecutors say Smith faces a range of possible sentences, from spending no time in custody to a maximum of four years and four months behind bars. Sentencing is set for July 25.

In November, Smith pleaded not guilty to three felony counts of illegal possession of an assault weapon after deputies said they found three assault rifles while responding to a complaint about a party in June 2012 at Smith’s home. Prosecutors say those rifles are illegal in California.

The DUI charges were filed after Smith’s car collided with a tree in San Jose in September and police said his blood-alcohol level was twice the legal limit.
