Vick Turns Himself In To Jail Before Being Sentenced

An officer walks in front of the Northern Neck Regional Jail where Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick is being held in Warsaw, Va., Monday, Nov. 19, 2007. Vick surrendered voluntarily to begin his prison term. He will be formally sentenced Dec. 10 in Richmond.

Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick, in a show of good faith, is turning himself in early to authorities well ahead of his December 10th sentencing on dogfighting charges.  Vick surrendered to the U.S. Marshal’s Service and will await sentencing at the Northern Neck Regional Jail, a 460-bed facility about an hour northeast of Richmond.  Vick’s attorney Billy Martin says the quarterback has and will continue to accept responsibility for his actions and turning himself in early was voluntary.  Meanwhile, two of Vick’s co-defendants,  Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips, will be sentenced November 30th for their roles in the dogfighting operation.
