    Plaxico Burress Going to Jail – WOW – He Deserves It!

    Plaxico Weapons Charges Football

    It’s official – – Plaxico Burress is going to jail.  Burress agreed to a plea bargain that will send him to jail for 2 years on one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon.  Burress faced a minimum sentence of 3 1/2 years in prison if he pressed his luck and went to trial.  If he has good behavior in prison, he will likely only have to serve 20 months of the 24-month sentence.  He will then be on probation for 2 years.

    Burress and his attorney Benjamin Brafman played hardball with the New York City District Attorney’s office throughout the ordeal.  That strategy looks like it failed them.  Ever since Burress rejected an initial plea deal to a lesser charge that would have had him serve a 3-month sentence, D.A. Robert Morgenthau has made it his mission to make an example out of Burress.

    Brafman had this to say about the deal – “This was not an intentional criminal act.  In my judgment, a two-year prison sentence is a very severe punishment.”  Let me get this straight – Burress took an unlicensed concealed fire arm into a New York City night club unintentionally?  What, Burress just happened to forget that he had the gun in the waistband of his pants?  This is ludicrous, and Burress deserves every single second that he spends in jail.  Luckily, Burress only shot himself when the gun went off – what if it had hit the security guard standing within inches of Burress at the time the gun went off accidentally?!  Good riddance Plaxico – at 34 coming out of jail – we doubt you’ll even have any juice left in the tank to make it back into the pros…
