Burress Pleads Guilty in Weapons Case

Updated, 10:16 a.m. | Plaxico Burress, the former Giants receiver, pleaded guilty on Thursday morning in his weapons-possession case in a deal with Manhattan prosecutors that will send him to prison for two years.

Justice Michael H. Melkonian of State Supreme Court accepted the guilty plea. Along with the two-year prison sentence, Mr. Burress, 31, will be sentenced to two years of post-release supervision.

Mr. Burress was indicted earlier this month on charges relating to an episode in November 2008, when he accidentally shot himself in the thigh in a Manhattan nightclub. The Giants released him in April without waiting for the outcome of the criminal proceedings.

If the case were to go to trial and Mr. Burress were convicted of all charges — two counts of second-degree criminal possession of a weapon and one count of second-degree reckless endangerment — he could face 3˝ to 15 years in prison. The plea agreement still needs the approval of a State Supreme Court justice.

The shooting occurred shortly after 1:30 a.m. on Nov. 29 at the Latin Quarter Nightclub in Midtown. Security guards had allowed Mr. Burress to enter with a .40-caliber Glock semiautomatic pistol tucked in the waistband of his jeans. The gun was loaded and not in a holster, according to prosecutors.

Mr. Burress, who caught the winning touchdown pass in the Giants’ 2008 Super Bowl victory against the New England Patriots, had a license to carry the gun in Florida, but it had expired nearly seven months before the shooting. Even if it were still valid, prosecutors said, Mr. Burress would not have been allowed to carry the weapon in New York.

Shortly after Mr. Burress reached the second-floor V.I.P. area, where there were 20 to 30 people, the gun slipped down his pant leg and accidentally fired as he attempted to prevent it from falling to the floor. The bullet hit Mr. Burress’s leg and narrowly missed a club security guard.

A grand jury decided not to indict Antonio Pierce, a Giants linebacker who was with Mr. Burress in the nightclub and drove him to a hospital.

In all seriousness, can someone more in touch than me explain why he had the gun? As an NFL player, is there a serious danger he was concerned about? Or was it something that he thought would impress the chicks? Is there any way he could've carried the gun legally, like with a permit or something?

And why no holster? Why was it tucked in the waistband of his pants? That seems like you're just asking to shoot your genitals off.

It seems like a long sentence for the crime, but at the same time I don't want to be in a public place with a guy with a gun hidden in his pants.

15 is fairly average for a WR. 17 is the avg. for WR's. Andre Johnson-14. Brandon Marshall-13.

Stallworth getting a BS plea deal shouldn't have any bearing whatsoever on Burress's sentence. Stallworth and Little should've spent a solid decade in the can, IMO.

Plex deserves his 2 years. After all that posturing he did, I'd have pulled the plea off the table if I were the DA.

So you're saying it was completely about safety then?

Maybe I am naive, but I see a lot of nice cars in Denver that aren't being carjacked. I don't know a lot about New York. Was he going to rougher places in New York, or do you think carjackings are a lot more common there?

If it was truly about his personal safety, could he have gotten a permit? It seems like if your name is Plaxico Burress in New York in 2007, you've probably got some pull.

08-20-2009, 09:51 AM
The security argument doesn't hold water. He could hire around the clock bodyguards with a fraction of the money hes made. What he did was pretty stupid, and I'm sure Plaxico is pretty stupid. That doesn't change the fact that the punishment doesn't really fit the crime.

Why he had the gun? Probably protection.

Could he carry the gun legally? Not unless he was a NY resident. My understanding is that he does have permits to carry in Florida. They do no good in NY. In NY you can't have a handgun if you don't have a NY permit and the only way to get a NY permit is to be a NY resident and apply. There is no reciprocity.

Why no holster? Because he's dumb.

Stiff sentence? Yes. One of the NY papers had an article that in similar situations the plea bargain is often a lot less than what Plax got.

It's gonna be Sing Sing for Plaxico -- even if he cops to a lesser gun charge, says Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau.

Negotiations in the gun-possession case against ex-Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress -- who accidentally shot himself in the leg at a Midtown nightclub last November -- fell apart earlier this year after prosecutors insisted he do two years' state time on a plea to a lesser gun charge, the DA told The Post.

NOT CATCHING ON WITH ANY TEAM

The Super Bowl XLII star was willing to bite the bullet and do jail time, but he wouldn't agree to more than a year, the DA said.

"We've always taken the position that he's going to have to go to jail, whether by trial or by plea," the legendary DA -- who retires at year end after 34 years in office -- said, breaking his public silence about the case.

Mr. Krab
08-20-2009, 10:09 AM

They had it on ESPN.

I guess Burress didn't want to go to jail so he decided to turn down the plea and testify himself. Then the Mayor went public and demanded a harsh sentence and the whole thing blew up.

He was stupid before he attended Mich. St. He was stupid while attending Mich. St. He was stupid while playing for the Steelers. Burress has always been a moron.

Still, that sentence is way too strong.

NYC is very tough on gun crimes. The Mayor is a notorious anti gun nut. They would have prosecuted Plax to the fullest. They wanted to make an example of him.

If its true his attorney had a 3 mos. sentence worked out he was stupid for not taking it. For a Plea deal he did get shafted in what he got. Oh well stupid is as stupid does.

"The NFL will not suspend Plaxico Burress beyond his two-year prison sentence.
Credit commissioner Goodell for not piling on when he saw that the punishment was already sufficiently stiff. Plax will be eligible to return to the league in 2011. Michael Vick, who at 29 is still in his quarterback prime, found a job within a month of being released from federal custody. In the late of summer of 2011 Plax will be 34 and sporting a history of behavioral problems."

You say you're looking for someone who's never wept, but always thrown together flowers constantly whether you were right or wrong. Someone to open each and every door, but it ain't me, babe. No, no, no, it ain't me, babe. It ain't me you're looking for, babe. You follow?"

Judge: "Yeah, gosh, you know your concepts are really interesting, Mr. Jung."

George: "Thank you."

Judge: "Unfortunately for you, the line you crossed was real, and the plants you brought with you were illegal."

he endangered every person in that club...a couple inches either way and someone could be dead....




I never like the woulda shoulda, this could happen or that could've happen. He shot himself.

Now if you want to get into carrying an illegal fireman in a club or a gun that's not registered, that's different.

Yep, they are saying 3 months jail time like 1500 community service and some other stuff.

Boy, he screwed up. :shake:

If that offer was definately on the table, well Plax is just flat out stupid.

He didn't just carry it, he fired it. The fact that he only hurt himself doesn't take that away.

Yes, the pistol was sliding in his sweat pants and grabbed it and shot himself.

The second amendment doesn't say you have to register a firearm
Somebody call up the local militia, we have an applicant.

Different case, different laws, different state.

But regardless of where you are, you can't fire a hand gun in a crowded club, even if its by accident and you only hit yourself. Anyone claiming that's protected by the 2nd amendment has no clue.

You know, I don't know much about guns, but I'd guess the majority of places have laws against:

-carrying a concealed weapon without a permit
-carrying a weapon while drinking
-carrying a weapon in any alcohol based establishment


If anyone can show me that those laws don't apply in Missouri, I'll STFU. But as it stands, he's a dumb ass in every state.
