Lawyer: "Not Guilty" Plaxico to Turn Himself In

11/30/2008 3:55 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Plaxico Burress' lawyer, Ben Brafman, just told us they were making arrangements for Plaxico to turn himself in tomorrow morning.

Ben said Burress will enter a plea of not guilty to one charge of illegal possession of a weapon, a felony.

Sources tell TMZ Burress could also be charged with reckless endangerment.

Ben Brafman tells TMZ his client "Intends to address the charges in a responsible manner as a true professional," adding, "I would hope that his fans reserve judgment in this matter until all of the facts are developed."

Brafman just left Plaxico's New Jersey home, where the wide receiver has been holed up since the shooting.

Leroy, i do hope you're kidding. If not, you are a MORON! ANY 7 million a year star athlete who shoots himself with his own weapon in a nightclub is a complete idiot, regardless of race. Where is this dude's common sense and priorities? Isn't he married with kids?

What a retard! He could've seriously hurt an innocent bystander. On a positive note, the Patriots fan in me is beyond thrilled to see a prized NY player go down. Haha sucka!!

Don't worry Leroy he will be ok. He got a good lawyer and we in the white house if there is anything fishy going on our boy will get the Justice Department on it. We don't have to worry about being framed and having biased juries anymore.

if you need a gun to go clubbin, maybe ya shouldn't be goin clubbin!

and if you get denied at one place, take your injured pride to someplace that thinks you're somebody and wants you there!

and if you shoot yourself with your own gun... you may be a retard.

Playing in the NFL is a privilege, not a right... At what point are people going to learn. Example! Mike Vick goes to jail and the Falcons move on and are doing better without him.

Funny. I've been target shooting since I was a little girl. I've never shot an an animal (I am a vegetarian) yet I've somehow managed to never shoot myself, or my Grandpa / Instructor.

What a bloody moron! Go Pats!!

This one isn't more than a few days out of the trees. If you carry a loaded weapon into a nightclub and it is fired (FOR ANY REASON) it should be a MINIMUM 5 year sentence!!!!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!!!! Can't we just handcuff this idiot to PacTHUG so it makes it a little harder to beat up women and hurt innocent bystanders? What a couple of canker sores on the butt of society!
