23 DAYS to 2 YEARS
If he had he'd be in for life. 2 years is nothing.

In two years, there will be at least 10 threads here about the Steelers being interested in Plex...and about 25% of the posters here will take it seriously.

Plexiglass shoots himself and gets 2 YEARS in jail.

Plex had his chance to get off the hook easy. But he pissed on it not wanting any time apparently and they took him to the cleaners.

Well, I'm sure Twitter will be much bigger by then and will be abuzz with stories about how the Steelers are a "perfect fit" for him.

EDIT: And I'll take ketchup with my crow - I never thought he'd see the inside of a jail cell.

I didn't hear about him turning down an earlier deal. The two years makes a little more sense if thats true. But, I agree, 2 years for accidently shooting yourself is too much. There are people who intentionally harm others that don't get that much time.

You're also looking at two different states.
no here's the difference....

Quote:
Burress, 31, is charged with criminal possession of a loaded and unlicensed weapon in Manhattan - a crime which carries a mandatory minimum sentence of 3-1/2 years.
Quote:
Stallworth, a receiver with the Cleveland Browns, was also facing a possible 15 years when he was arrested and charged with DUI manslaughter after he killed Mario Reyes while driving drunk
note the highlighted words .... MANDATORY and POSSIBLE. ...in burress's crime his destiny was preordained...in stallworths crime his destiny was determined by what kind of mood the judge was in that day. screwed up laws ??? damn right they are. if they REALLY want to deter crimes, ALL laws would have mandatory sentences, how good your lawyer is, or what judge you get, or what kind of mood he is in or does the states attourney "owe" the lawyer a "favor"...it shouldn't be playing a part in punishments..EVERYBODY should get the same reguardless of who you are or how wealthy you are.

another thing to roll over is, was the guy that got hit by stallworth at least partially at fault here ??? from what i gather he wasn't exactly in a pedestian cross walk. maybe had stallworth not been drinking, the results STILL might have been the same.who's to say the alchohol was the determining factor ? people DO have automobile accidents without being under the influence.

Holy crap! It's not too often that your April Fool's joke actually comes true:

http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=34968


Also, what a moron for turning down that plea deal. He could've already been out of jail by now and playing for the Cowboys or the RRRAAAAAAAAAAIDERRRRRRS.

I think 2 years for that is ignorant. It is all about anti-gun laws. What a shame. Now if it was "discharging a firing arm in an unsafe place not in self-defense" or something like that... I say, "Great. I understand that law."

And no, There IS a major difference between This and Donte Stallworth.

Had Stallworth been sober, there is STILL a very good chance the death happens. The guy ran out illegally into the street. Stallworth reacted, but not in time.

Plax's issue was ALL PLAX. Not one iota of responsibility can fall to anyone else.

But 2 years for a gun... Get real.
