Default Burress to get 2 years in Prison

http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=4411373

Quote:
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 3 years if convicted at a trial.

Burress' sentencing is set for Sept. 22.

Wow - pretty stiff (twss). What did Stallworth get for killing a guy?

Edit: after reading the article more thoroughly, I see the actual sentencing hasn't taken place yet. I assume they'll stick to the plea agreement, but I wouldn't be surprised if that turns out to be a bad assumption.

Between Burress and Stallworth the sentences seem to be more than a bit out of whack for the offenses. IMO, it would have been more in line if Stallworth got the two years and Burress should have got the 29 days.

Things is if it went to trial the charge carried a minimum mandatory 3 year sentence.

Default Re: Burress to get 2 years in Prison

Thought of Burress when I came across this piece. Both of them probably graduated (or maybe not) from the same School of Mentally Ill Equipped.


Quote:
BRISTOW, Okla. - Drew Patterson wanted to protect himself after hearing reports of an fugitive in this northeastern Oklahoma community. He didn't think he would be nursing a sore rear end.

Patterson's .22-caliber pistol, hooked into the waistband of his denim shorts with the hammer pulled back, apparently fired, hitting Patterson in the left buttock Wednesday afternoon.

Patterson, 27, said he suffered "one of my most embarrassing moments" when his gun fired.

"At first, I didn't feel anything at all," said Patterson, who talked readily about the incident Thursday at his parents' Bristow home.

"Then about 30 seconds later, I felt that burning, stinging," he said.

He felt something warm trickling down his left leg and found an exit wound.

Patterson said he walked into his parents' home and said, "Mom, I did something bad."

The gun charge in New York carries a mandatory sentence.

The charge in Florida does not.

Just pointing out that the myriad laws at different locations/levels of the justice system result in decisions that appear out of whack.

You forgot to mention that Stallworth is also on probation for a long time paid restitution to the family and can never ever drive again.

Carrying a pistol in NY is illegal and carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3 years. He isn't being punished for being a dumbass but for violating the law.

Actually he is being punished for being a dumbass, because if he hadn't of somehow managed to shoot himself nobody probably would have even known he was packing.

Prediction? The Giants will SUCK HARD this year exposing Eli Manning as the OVER RATED/OVER PAID FLUKE that he is. Say what you want about Burress, but as long as he was on the field you had to have two guys on him. Over rated Eli loses that...and he's in for a world of hurt.

They drafted Nicks 1st and Ramses Barden from Cal Poly in the 3rd. I think the drop-off won't be so much, especially if Barden hones that 6'6'' frame into a redzone threat. Oh yeah and the Giants running game is sweet and the defense is still a monster...

Eli may be overrated but he's certainly got a few cushions to fall on....
