Ex-Raider Anthony Smith Sentenced to Life in Prison


Former Raiders defensive end Anthony Smith has been sentenced to life in prison.

Smith is serving the sentences for killing three men between 1999 and 2001. He played for Oakland for six seasons. The accusations against Smith are that he kidnapped two brothers from a car wash and then shot them, dumping their bodies less than 10 miles apart from each other. 

Two years later in 2001, Smith was allegedly a part of a group that kidnapped another man and stabbed him to death.

Smith received the three life terms without the possibility of parole.
