Burress hires prison consultant
Benjamin Brafman tells the New York Post in a story published Saturday that the wide receiver is getting advice on "how to use his period of confinement as productively as possible."
The 32-year-old Burress pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He had accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub in November.
His plea deal calls for a two-year prison term. Burress is to be sentenced Sept. 22.
Consultants are popular among celebrities and other high-profile people facing incarceration.
Burress caught the touchdown pass that clinched the Giants' victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLII.
