You might be able to plea down to a year or 2, but no way do you get off with just a fine. And a first-time offender? Please. Burress has a spotty record filled with domestic disturbances, restraining orders, civil suits and countless driving violations.
    Thats IF it goes to trial. Its something thats usually plead down.

      He broke the law when he put a loaded weapon on his person. He broke the law again when he concealed it. He broke the law a third time when he entered a bar with it (strictly forbidden under most gun laws).
      ........


      Stallworth's intent was to go home. Nothing more, nothing less. He exercised poor judgment as to the "how" of that situation and he did a tremendous amount of damage as a result. He is being punished for that poor judgment. He did not mean to cause any harm however, and certainly did not plan it ahead of time.
      So... There was no intent to break the law when he got into a vehicle put in his keys and drove of... DRUNK?

      Stallworth INTENDED to drive DRUNK and get home. NO more no less. (As far as we know)
      Plax INTENDED to carry a gun into a bar. NO More no less. (As far as we know)

      Yet Stallworths actions ended in someones death, while plax only shot himself.... and you think its just that Plax is getting a much worse sentance than stallworth?

        I think that someone saying, "I'm capable of driving" is a far less egregious error in and of itself than saying "I'm going to load a gun, stuff it in my pants, and take it with me to the bar."

        While the outcome of Stallworth's decision ultimately cost a life while Plaxico's did not, one can easily argue that Stallworth did not anticipate any issues and thought he was fine, and genuinely never meant to hurt anyone or break the law.

        One cannot make that argument for Plaxico.
