Plaxico Burress Sentenced to 2 Years on Gun Charge-Too Harsh?

| by DeepDiveAdmin

Former Super Bowl star Plaxico Burress was sentenced Tuesday in New York to two years in prison for possessing an unlicensed gun. He began serving his sentence immediately following the hearing. The gun accidentally went off inside a nightclub last year, hitting the former Giants wide receiver in the leg. Some say the DA made an example of Burress, making sure he served serious prison time. Others say he got what he deserved. What do you think?

Note: The Associated Press video says Burress' attorney's name is Benjamin Brafton. His correct name is Brafman.
