Burress Pleads Guilty

For those following the Plaxico Burress saga, Burress pleaded guilty this morning to one count of criminal possession of a weapon. Under his plea agreement, Burress will receive a two-year prison sentence, along with two years of post-release supervision. With good behavior, however, he will be eligible for parole after approximately 20 months in jail. Had Burress not reached a plea agreement, he was potentially facing up to 15 years in prison.

The plea agreement is still pending the approval of a state court judge, with sentencing set for September 22.
