BREAKING NEWS: Plaxico Burress Pleads Guilty

Steve ChottCorrespondent IAugust 20, 2009

Early Thursday morning, former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress has pleaded guilty to one count of criminal possession of a weapon, and will serve two years in jail.

This all stems from Burress accidentally shooting himself with an unlicensed gun in a Manhattan nightclub last November.

Burress' sentence is scheduled to start on Sept. 22, which means he most likely won't be playing in the NFL this year.
