Lawyer: Plaxico will testify before grand jury

Plaxico Burress’ lawyer said Tuesday that the former Giants wide receiver will testify Wednesday before a grand jury hearing arguments on his gun charges.

Burress’ attorney, Ben Brafman, hopes that his client can convince the grand jury assembled in Manhattan Supreme Court to forgo an indictment.

“Mr. Burress is going to … tell the truth about what happened that night,” Brafman said.

Burress is also expected to ask the grand jury not to indict him, said Brafman.

“He’s going to ask them to believe that this unfortunate incident should not be used to ruin his life,” Brafman said.
