State Senator Virgil Smith will face a judge and possible jail time today.

The 35-year-old Democratic senator from Detroit made a plea deal in the case linked to an altercation with his ex-wife.

She discovered him with another woman last spring. He shot at his ex-wife’s 2015 Mercedes-Benz with a rifle. Fortunately, no one was shot during the incident.

The senator pleaded guilty to malicious destruction of property.

This morning, we’re hearing he could face 5 years probation with the first 10 months in jail.

He will also have to resign his seat in the Michigan Senate.
