Vicks Pleads Guilty Again, Hopes To Be Released Soon…

I still don’t believe any team will take a chance on Vick just because of the protesting and backlash that will come anytime he hits the field. I guess we will see in a couple of short months.  And was Vick on the list of possible pardons Bush had on his desk?

SUSSEX, Va. (AP) – Former NFL star quarterback Michael Vick has pleaded guilty to a state dogfighting charge in Virginia in a bid to make him eligible for early release from jail.

The 28-year-old Vick pleaded guilty to one charge and not guilty to a second count involving torturing or killing animals. The second count was dropped.

Vick was given a three-year suspended sentence. The plea could potentially speed his return to the NFL.

Federal law prohibits prisoners from being released to a halfway house if there are unresolved charges pending.

Vick was expressionless throughout the brief hearing. He told the judge he apologized to his family and to children who looked up to him as a role model.
