Former NFL wide receiver, 37-year-old Plaxico Antonio Burress, may get a reprieve by striking a deal with prosecutors for the resolution of his tax evasion case before he appears in court in July, the Trentonian reported on June 10.
Burress’ legal team reportedly already struck a deal with the prosecution to allow the third-degree charges – which may carry a maximum sentence of ten years of imprisonment and a fine of up to $15,000 – to contain no jail time for Burress if he pleads guilty
A defense attorney said the deal was made possible because “the primary directive for prosecutors in tax and fraud cases is to get the money back.”
