Burress Testifies Before Grand Jury

Plaxico Burress testified Wednesday before the Manhattan grand jury that's considering whether to indict him on weapon charges stemming from the incident last year in which he accidentally shot himself in the leg at a New York nightclub.

"I testified before the grand jury," Burress said afterward, according to the New York Daily News. "I was truthful, I was honest and I am truly remorseful for what I've done, what happened and what I did. I just want to thank everybody--family, friends and fans--for their support."

Burress's testimony lasted approximately three hours, according to the Daily News.

Prosecutors are adamant that Burress must serve jail time in the case, and no plea deal has been struck between them and Burress's attorney.

The wide receiver is a free agent after being released by the New York Giants and reportedly faces possible disciplinary action by the NFL.
