Michael Vick heading to jail
Atlanta Falcons quarterback and super asshole Michael Vick accepted a plea deal and prison sentence today after pleading guilty to illegal dogfighting. The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Michael Vick’s attorney announced in a statement today:
“After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asked that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him. Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter.”
Three of Vick’s original co-defendants have already pleaded guilty and agreed to testify against him if the case goes to trial, saying Vick also participated in executing at least eight under-performing dogs by various means, including drowning and hanging. Wow, this guy drowned and hung defenseless dogs. What a real big man. This must be the kind of person comic book superheroes are based off of.
