Vick To Jail, Ahead of Schedule

Warsaw VA. – Michael Vick turned himself over to authorities at North Neck Regional Jail yesterday - three weeks before his sentencing.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback was scheduled to report for a Dec. 10th sentencing in the dog fighting case. Vick has admitted to personally killing eight pit bulls.

In April authorities seized dozens of dogs from the illegal operation, dubbed Bad Newz Kennels.

Vick could serve more than five years in prison for a guilty plea to dog fighting conspiracy – a federal crime.

In addition, Vick said he supplied money to the gambling operation - but denied gambling himself. Involved in gambling, either directly or indirectly, violates the NFL’s code of personal conduct, and may result in a lifetime ban.

Well he is out now. Let's see if the oh so greedy NFL hires him--I think that if they can overcome the backlash they will.

They can keep him. I gave my Vick jersey to the dogs to tear up as soon as I heard about this.
