    I believe the initial plea offer was for 1 year, and he turned it down.

    Given that Bloomberg wanted to make an example out of Plexiglass to show he was serious about having that law enforced, I'm skeptical that a one-year sentence was truly on the table for him. The ESPN article says the negotiations broke down and went to the grand jury because the DA was insisting that Burress spend at least two years in prison.

    And thus, celebrity-athlete status can work against you, as well as for you, depending on other factors. Lots of people claimed the Club Rio/ Cloud 9 charges were overstated because the prosecutor wanted to appear to be a tough guy. It cuts both ways.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you
