According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, Burress would testify before the grand jury on Wednesday, July 29.
Brafman and Burress reportedly are discussing the possibility, and a decision as to whether he’ll testify will come on Tuesday.
The fact that Brafman is even considering the move demonstrates how clear the facts of the case are. Unless Burress plans to claim that he was shot by a gun that was in someone else’s possession, he’ll tell the grand jury why he was carrying a gun, that he had a license to carry it in Florida, that he had no idea the license didn’t apply to New York, and that the only reason anyone knew he had the gun is because he blew two holes through his leg.
But if the grand jury takes seriously its obligation to uphold the law, none of this will matter.
But if they don’t, he might avoid an indictment.
