Plaxico Burress Doesn't Receive Prison Sentence For Tax Evasion Charges

TMZ Sports has learned, Plaxico Burress is NOT going to prison for tax evasion -- despite the fact he was facing an entire DECADE behind bars.
As we previously reported, officials in Mercer County, NJ charged the ex-NFL star with two tax crimes for failing to pay $48k in state taxes ... each count carried a maximum 5-year prison sentence under NJ's new ultra-strict tax laws.
