Plaxico Burress receives a 2 year prison term

Post  56 Crazed Dogs on Thu Aug 20, 2009 11:59 am

Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty Thursday to a weapons charge and agreed to a two-year prison term for accidentally shooting himself at a Manhattan nightclub.

Plaxico Burress and his wife, Tiffany, arrive at a court date for the ex-Giants star earlier this year. The ex-wide receiver pleaded guilty to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon, a lesser charge than he initially faced. Under a plea agreement, he agreed to a two-year prison sentence and two years of supervised release.

Burress was indicted earlier this month on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon and one count of reckless endangerment. He faced a minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years if convicted at a trial.

It seems harsh compared to most states I agree, but it's actually very favorable for Plax since it's should be a 3.5 year sentence in NY.... and that's just for carrying a gun. Plax's gun was fired in a public place... even if accidental.

Burress is stupid, but he's not a bad guy. Two years is far too much in my opinion.

Didn't the DA want to cut a deal very early on with like a 3 month prison sentence, or something like that, but Burress turned it down because he didn't want to do any jail time (which I don't blame him). If my memory serves me correctly, then damn what a difference that would have been. He'd be done with his time and be getting back to trying to play now (or pretty soon at least).
