NEW YORK (AP) — A gun possession case against New York Giants star Plaxico Burress (PLEK’-sih-koh BUR’-ihs) has been adjourned until June 15.

 

Burress accidentally shot himself in the leg with an unlicensed gun at a nightclub last year.

 

The star receiver, wearing a gray suit, arrived at court Tuesday in the company of his wife, Vicki, and his attorney. Following a brief hearing, his case was adjourned.

 

A person with knowledge of the case says Burress and prosecutors have been in discussions about a deal but remain at odds over the terms.

 

He has been charged with criminal possession of a weapon in the second degree, a felony carrying a minimum prison sentence of 3 1/2 years upon conviction.
