Plaxico Burress is in big trouble

As a friend of mine mentioned today, New York gun laws are draconian. The New York Giant reciever is looking at some real time behind bars for this little escapade.

I’m guessing the time in the clink will be a career-ender for Plax.

From the link:

In what prosecutors called “a strong case,” Burress faces a mandatory sentence of 3 ½ years in state prison, with a maximum of 15 years, on each count. Benjamin Brafman, Burress’s lawyers, said Burress planned to plead not guilty to both charges.

Burress remained silent through the proceedings and did not talk to reporters Monday. Brafman, who told reporters that he would not talk about specifics of the case, said that he hoped prosecutors would let the investigations of the matter play out before moving ahead with the matter.
