After almost five months behind bars, former Oakland Raiders cornerback Sean Smith has been released from jail.
Last year, the former baller was arrested on felony assault charges for an incident that occurred on July 4th involving his sister’s boyfriend.
At the time, Smith was accused of stomping the man out and beating him into critical condition, leaving him with 5 facial fractures that required reconstructive surgery.
Although Smith initially pled not guilty, a plea deal with prosecutors cut his sentence from a possible seven years to a short 12-months, with five years of probation. However, as part of the deal, Smith had to enter a guilty plea to felony assault by means of force likely to create great bodily injury.
Now, just five months into his 12-month stint, Smith is a free man.
According to TMZ, the former baller was originally scheduled to be released on September 5th due to good behavior and overcrowding. But now, he’s been given a head start on freedom, and released one month early.
