Man convicted of stabbing 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith

SAN JOSE — A San Jose man has been convicted of stabbing 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith.

Santa Clara County Deputy District Attorney Charles Gillingham said Monday that 28-year-old Steven Barba had entered no-contest pleas to charges of assault with a deadly weapon and being a felon in possession of a gun during a court hearing last week. The crimes occurred during a 2012 house party at which two people were shot, leading to weapons charges against Smith.

According to Gillingham, Barba was attending a party o Nov. 3, 2012, at Smith's San Jose home, and when Smith tried to disperse the rowdy crowd, Barba stabbed him twice in the torso before fleeing. Smith was not seriously injured.

Barba is expected to be sentenced to three years in prison on July 15.
