Weapons Case Against Burress Punted Until September

Published June 15, 2009

The weapons possession case against former New York Giants wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been adjourned until September.

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 3 1/2 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.
