"Former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has pleaded guilty to weapons charges and agreed to serve two years in prison, bringing to an end a case that began last year when Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg in a New York nightclub.

The New York Times reports that Justice Michael H. Melkonian of State Supreme Court accepted the guilty plea, which will also require Burress to serve two years of post-release supervision. Legal analysts say Burress will likely serve around 20 months in prison." via NFL Fanhouse
