Vick Apparently Won’t Fumble Chance To Plead Guilty


Michael Vick apparently will be tackled by the strong arm of the law.  He is said to be close to pleading guilty to his role in a dogfighting scheme this week.  The “Richmond Times-Dispatch” reports that the star quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons would serve at least one year in prison if he agrees to the plea deal offered by federal prosecutors.  The newspaper reports sources close to talks between the legal team for the former Virginia Tech star and prosecutors as saying Vick would plead guilty to a felony.  Scheming to travel in interstate commerce and taking part in dogfighting and gambling carries a maximum prison term of five years and a fine of a quarter-million dollars. Sentencing the football superstar would be U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson.  Vick may decide now to plead guilty because prosecutors plan to slap him with stiffer charges if he doesn’t accept the plea deal; charges that would carry a stiffer prison sentence.  Two co-defendants are scheduled to plead guilty this week.  A third co-defendant already has done so.
