Former NFL and New York Giants superstar wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been denied his bid for work release for the second time.

Currently serving a two-year sentence, Plax could remain in jail until next spring.

As previously reported, Burress plead guilty in August of 2099  to criminal weapons possession of a weapon  after he accidentally shot himself in the leg inside a New York nightclub in 2008.

According to The Associated Press, the state Department of Correctional Services said the nature of his November 2008 crime merited turning down his request for a work furlough, which would have let him spend some portion of his time free and working.

Burress can appeal the decision but otherwise can’t reapply for a work furlough until June 6, 2011, the date he comes up for potential full release if he gets time off for good behavior.

“The serious and negative impact illegal guns have on the community coupled with (the) dangerous nature of the weapon discharging in a public place renders him unsuitable for work release,” the agency said.

Plaxico has also has completed an anger management program behind bars, Foglia said.
