Plaxico Burress indicted

Plaxico Burress has officially been indicted by a New York grand jury on charges of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, according to the New York Times. His former teammate with the Giants, Antonio Pierce, was not indicted.

Mr. Burress was indicted on two counts of criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, and one count of reckless endangerment in the second degree.

Each of the weapons counts carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3½ years, and a maximum sentence of 15 years, in state prison. The charge of reckless endangerment carries a maximum sentence of 1 year in jail.

The New York City District Attorney is pushing for Burress to serve at least two years in prison, although Plax’s attorney is hoping that his client will only serve a max of one. The question now becomes whether or not Burress will be suspended this season and if so, for how long.
