Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

It sounded like from the beginning that Pierce was complicit in an attempted cover up. This may put an interesting twist on Plax's plea discussions. The DA's office will try to put these guys in a position to contradict each other.

I could see Pierce pleading to a lesser charge, but if they have his prints and any evidence that he handled the gun, it'll be hard for him to get out of it.

Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

I just cant see a GUN charge here. Maybe an obstruction charge or something like tampering with evidence but not a gun possesion charge. I am starting to think this DA is trying to make a name for himself.

Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

If Plax had so many threats of robbery, with the money he is making, why didn't he hire his own security staff. He had to act all tough and take matters into his own hands. It already cost him alot in shotting himself, now he will most likely face a prison term and damage what is left of his career. And to top it all off Pierce is going to be brought into this by trying to help his friend. I understand helping a buddy out, being scared in the situation and not thinking clearly, but he should have never tried to hide the gun with the law the way it is in New York.

Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

Lets see....law is to have an unregistered gun automatic 3yrs jail. What is Buress going to say if he testifies?....someone planted it on him? It's not his? I know this has been run into the ground but can someone refresh my memory....can they give him the yrs and suspend all the time for this charge in NY?

Sean Taylor didn't go to a club and then shoot himself! In fact, he never carried one. He just rolled up on those guys that stole his ATV's and kicked their asses!

I saw the picture of him last night then heard Czaban this morning comment about him. He's turning 90 in 3 days. I think the longer Plax and Pierce can strech this thing out the better for them, this DA does not have that much time left.

Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

I guess it is a pretty sad situation that is going on with sports athletes these days. They are all targets. Vernon Forest the most recent. Steve Mcnair. They all need to be safe and smart. I don't know what that means, but it seems like guys are getting gunned down more and more.

Burress had purchased the gun legally and can document that the permit renewal form was never forwarded to him in New Jersey, Brafman said.
I found that interesting.

Thats like someone using the "I didn't know" excuse for missing a court date. At the end of the day, it was PBs responsibility to make sure everything was taken care of. He decided not to register the gun. Now he has to face the music.

What can the da do after the state of NY, the mayor & city admin. have taken a firm stance on guns & crime? As I recall the mayor made a statement shortly after this incident saying plax would be treated like anyone else would, i.e. convicted & jailed if guilty.

The da doesn't sound like he's trying to pimp himself or rushing to judgement at all, he's just taking steps to get Pierce indicted to bolster the case. Smart move, why wouldn't you indict a guy you believe was complicit w/a crime? At the least, putting Pierce on the stand (if it goes to trial) is absolutely essential. There's no way this thing can proceed w/out Pierce in some manner. His testimony, true or not, is vital to the case.

How much you wanna bet that he & plax ain't too friendly after this thing is over?

Re: Antonio Pierce facing gun charges(Burress incident)

I agree, this is pretty cut and dry.
Didn't Martha Stewart do time for just Obstruction of justice and lying to investigators in a criminal investigation? In New York? They never got the conviction of insider trading.
If Pierce did lie and try to cover up a criminal act (I am not saying he did, I do not know) then it is not a stretch to expect any different from NY DA?
