Former NFL wide receiver Plaxico Burress thought that he avoided prison on tax evasion charges via a deal to pay New Jersey roughly $48,000 in back taxes.
Burress could be looking at some more jail time according to various reports.
According to Kevin Shea of NJ.com, Burress was offered a deal that would put him on probation for five years — and behind bars for one-year.
His prior criminal record prevents the likelihood that he would only receive probation. Burress pleaded guilty to a weapons charge back in 2009, and spent two years in prison after he accidentally shot himself at a Manhattan night club in 2008.
Burress is being prosecuted under a new law in New Jersey that equates a failed electronic funds transfer to a bad check.
