Plaxico Burress Gets Two Years

Pleads guilty rather than face the possibility of 3-1/2 year sentence.

That seems to be the modus-operandi of the NYC prosecutors: maneuver the defendant into a plea-bargain where a guilty plea is irresistibly attractive. If you plead guilty, you can't appeal! And the last thing they want is an appeal to reach SCOTUS.

Meanwhile, no word on the NYPD cop who showed up at a nightclub drunk, threatened the bouncer with an illegal gun (serial number defaced) and had marijuana in his car. What was that cop's name again? Oh, yeah! Trevor Harpaul.
