NEW YORK (AP) - The weapons possession case against former New
York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been adjourned until
Burress made a brief appearance in court Monday. The judge adjourned the case until Sept. 23.
The 31-year-old, 6-foot-5 Burress shot himself in the thigh with an unlicensed gun Nov. 29 while in a Manhattan nightclub. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and faces up to 3½
years in prison.
Burress has pleaded not guilty and is free on $100,000 bail.
Burress caught the game-winning touchdown for the Giants in the 2008 Super Bowl. The team released him April 3.
