Is Delonte West The New Plaxico Burress?

OK, so the analogy isn’t exact. Plaxico accidentally fired his gun at himself; West was driving with a dangerous amount of ammo and weapons in a backpack on a motorcycle (which is still hard to believe, actually). But their outcomes could be similar: The Washington Post’s Ruben Castenada reports that Prince George County prosecutors almost always seek jail time for serious gun offenses, even for first-time offenders, which includes Mr. West:

Prince George’s prosecutors routinely seek jail time for people convicted of weapons charges, even first-time offenders. State’s Attorney Glenn F. Ivey said West’s case will be handled no differently than any other.

That’s not exactly surprising, but it is confirmation that, if convicted, West will almost certainly be facing considerable, career-altering jail time.
