Today, Plax pleaded guilty to a weapons charge and agreed to a 2 year prison term. Here's the story below from ESPN.com:
NEW YORK -- Former New York Giants receiver Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty to a weapons charge and agreed to a two-year prison term for accidentally shooting himself at a Manhattan nightclub.
Burress pleaded guilty Thursday morning 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 3½ years if convicted at a trial.
Burress' sentencing is set for Sept. 22.
On top of that, if Plax applies for reinstatement into the NFL after his jail term, he'll definitely recieve a suspension from Roger Goodell. See kids, this is what happens when dumb people do dumb things.
