Vick Said To Be In Plea Bargain Talks

Michael Vick’s legal team is scrambling to cut a plea bargain with federal prosecutors in the dogfighting case.  The “Atlanta Journal-Constitution” reports the negotiations are ongoing as the former Virginia Tech star’s two other co-defendants are due to enter plea agreements in court in Richmond this week.  Scheduled in federal court tomorrow is Purnell Peace with Quanis Phillips to follow on Friday.  Late last month, co-defendant Tony Taylor pleaded guilty to his part in a dogfighting conspiracy he says was paid almost totally by the quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons.  Part of Taylor’s deal calls for him to cooperate with the government in its prosecution of the three other co-defendants.  There also is word that a federal grand jury in Richmond could slap Vick with a new indictment early next week.  The superstar athlete may want to enter a plea to the charges he faces now instead of waiting to be hit with more accusations.  Criminal defense attorney Tony Anderson from Roanoke says Vick might spend no more than 12 months in jail and could play in the NFL in 2008.
