Well isn’t this good news for Plaxico “I shot myself in the thigh” Burress:
Former NFL wide receiver Plaxico Burress is expected to leave a New York prison Monday after serving 20 months on a weapons charge stemming from a shooting incident at a nightclub.
The former New York Giants player accidentally shot himself in the leg with a .40-caliber semi-automatic pistol he was carrying in his waistband. The incident occurred in November 2008, in the VIP area of the Latin Quarter nightclub in Manhattan. Burress was not licensed to carry a pistol in either New York or New Jersey, where he lived.
In August 2009, he pleaded guilty to a charge of attempted criminal possession of a weapon and agreed to serve two years under a plea agreement.
He spent the last 20 months at the Oneida Correctional Facility in Rome, New York.
Congrats to him, hopefully he learned his lesson!
