Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty Thursday to a weapons charge and agreed to a two-year prison term for accidentally shooting himself at a Manhattan nightclub.

The ex-wide receiver pleaded guilty 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.

With time off for good behavior, the two-year sentence could be reduced to 20 months. Sentencing was set for Sept. 22 and if Burress were to go to prison soon after, he could be freed as early as the spring of 2011.

I think this is a fair ruling on Burress but I was kindda shocked he got 2years it beggars belief that Donte Stallworth got less time for killing a guy with his car.

It's the different laws in the two cities, Miami and New York. New York has a strong laws on unlicenced firearms, which Burress's was. They have made an example of him, but this is a plea bargain, he could have got a lot more if he went not guilty. It should put off a few people over there from carrying unlicenced firearms.
