Plaxico Burress -- Smells Like Fishkill

9/22/2009 12:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned where Plaxico Burress is expected to serve part of his 2-year prison sentence -- a place more than 100 years old.

Plaxico is currently in the Manhattan Detention Complex, but Plaxcico's lawyer, Ben Brafman, tells us Plax is expected to be shipped to the famous Rikers Island correctional facility and then quickly moved to the Fishkill Correctional Facility in upstate New York.

We're told Plaxico will spend a total of 4-6 weeks going through the Rikers and Fishkill systems -- while authorities determine where Plaxico will spend the bulk of his sentence.

FYI -- Fishkill, which was constructed in 1896, was originally used as a hospital for the criminally insane.

It is a good thing that he is a wide receiver...lord knows he'll never be able to claim to be a tight end when he gets out.

On another note...Michael Vick spends 18 months in jail for personally killing dogs and being a major part of a dog fighting ring ...yet a moron who shoots his own leg gets 20 months? All this tells me is that even in the justice system quarterbacks get all the gravy.

One way or another, all these downstate dummies are relocating Upstate, like the rats fleeing a sink ship, they are.

First off John H... You should shoot yourself and save the world from your exsistence...

But at for Plaxico, how do you get 2 yrs for shooting yourself? He ain't hurt anyone but himself. Once the bullet went throught I think he learned his lesson.

And to the person that made the Mick Vick response that is very true.

Fishkill Correctional is not far from where I live. My brother is serving time there. I think that is funny. If you drive up Route 84 they have signs on the road that says "NO STOPPING ANYTIME." I can't wait for him to get there, I want to get all the low down when he is in there.
