Michael Vick Pleads Guilty To Dogfighting Charge

Posted by | November 25, 2008 12:03 | Filed under: Top Stories

But does Vick really believe he’s guilty, or is this just a ploy to eventually get him out of prison and back to pro football?

Vick already is serving a 23-month sentence in Leavenworth, Kan. for bankrolling a dogfighting operation at a home he owned in eastern Virginia’s rural Surry County, southeast of Richmond. He also admitted to participating in the killing of several underperforming dogs.


He’s scheduled for release on July 20, 2009, and will serve three years of probation. The latest plea is important because it resolves the remaining charges against him, which is required under federal law if he is to move into a halfway house. He received a three-year suspended sentence Tuesday.

They dropped the animal cruelty charge as part of a plea deal, but how do you participate in dogfighting that is not cruel to animals?
