Benjamin Brafman, the attorney for former Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress, said his client is still undecided about whether or not to testify before a grand jury, but that a final decision on that matter will come this afternoon. If Burress does testify, he would do so Wednesday, Brafman said this morning.
Burress could face a mandatory minimum sentence stemming from an illegal weapons possession charge dating to last November, when he was hospitalized after accidentally shooting himself in the leg at a New York nightclub. According to a New York Post report, a verdict from the grand jury could come in the next four weeks. The Manhattan District Attorney’s office is not commenting on the case at this time and will not confirm any details of the Post report, according to a spokesperson.
