Plaxico Burress indicted
Yesterday, the NY Times had this story. His attorney notes that Burress could face 3.5 years prison time for having an illegal gun (its really stupid handling is a different matter), whereas another football player got 30 days for killing someone while driving drunk. But Paul Helke of Brady Campaign says he should get "at least" the 3.5 years.
Today comes this report that he has been indicted.
Here's another NY Times piece, with details on local politics. It seems he choose a bad time for his foulup: Mayor Michael Bloomberg was gearing up for re-election and "Cracking down on gun violators is virtually a sacred cause for the mayor."
