    Plax hired a prison consultant to help him navigate the big house.

    Plaxico Burress' lawyer says a prison consultant is preparing the former Super Bowl star for life behind bars.

         Benjamin Brafman tells the New York Post in a story published Saturday the ex-New York Giants wide receiver is getting advice on "how to use his period of confinement as productively as possible.''
        
    The 32-year-old Burress pleaded guilty Thursday to one count of attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He had accidentally shot himself in the thigh at a Manhattan nightclub in November.
        
    His plea deal calls for a two-year prison term. He is to be sentenced Sept. 22.
        
    Prison consultants have become increasingly popular among celebrities and other high-profile people facing incarceration.
        
    Burress caught the last-minute touchdown that gave the Giants the 2008 Super Bowl championship.
