A curious dynamic has unfolded over the past few months in the case
involving Giants receiver Plaxico Burress. A strong sense has arises that the
case against Burress is open and shut.
But is it?
Because it’s been nearly eight months since Plaxico Burress took a
loaded Glock into a Manhattan nightclub and then accidentally sent one
of its bullets through the flesh of his thigh, we decided to go back to
square one and revisit the specific laws that apply in this case.
And we’re glad we did. Because it appears that Burress might have a
better chance at avoiding a conviction that we previously believed.
We’re in the process of banging out a comprehensive analysis, which either will be posted here or sent to SportingNews.com as a replacement for the column I sent in yesterday under the assumption that Burress will be indicted.
I still wouldn’t bet against an indictment, but the odds aren’t quite as steep as I previously believed.
