On Nov. 29, 2008 Burress shot himself in the thigh at a night club. He was charged with criminal possession of a weapon and can be sentenced up to three in a half years. He will also have to deal with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell for violating the league’s terms of conduct. Right now Burress is released on a $100,000 bail until his sentencing. The Manhattan District Attorney wants Burress to receive time in prison. Burress said himself that he was willing to spend one year in prison but the prosecutors want him to serve two. Burress will most likely receive a year in jail, but after that he has to worry about getting his career back in order.
