Plaxico Burress Plea Bargain: 2 Years

Player utilities

Listen to the story.

Former New York Giants wide-reciever Plaxico Burress accepted a plea bargain yesterday which will send him to prison for 2 years after pleading guilty to a weapons charge. As you might remember, Burress walked into a nightclub in New York City last November with a gun tucked in the waistband of his sweat pants. The gun slipped, and as Burress grabbed for it, he accidentally shot a bullet into his own leg. Burress' Florida gun license was expired; he had no license to carry a gun in New York. Also making headlines is Jamaican runner Usain Bolt, who broke his own world record in the 100m dash. Again. Joining us is Ibrahim Abdul-Matin, The Takeaway's sports contributor, along with New York Giants fan and family-law attorney Jeff Blank.
