Vick Pleads Guilty…Now Set For July 20, 2009 Release
Vick has just plead guilty to one felony count of engaging in or promoting dogfighting (the charge of beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs was dropped!) in a Surry County Circuit Court in Virgina this morning. During the hearing, Vick addressed the judge after pleading guilty and said, “I would just like to apologize to the court, my family and all the kids who looked up to me as a role model”. Awww!
Now with all charges out the way, he can be released from federal prison to a federal halfway house up to 6 months prior to his scheduled release date in July. All he has to do is stay out of trouble and pray that Goodell lets him return to the NFL in 2009.
In a statement released yesterday, Goodell was quoted as saying, “The good news is I don’t have to make that decision right now. He hasn’t finished serving his time, and the legal process isn’t completed, and I said he was suspended until that process was completed. And at that point I will make a decision on his ability to play in the NFL.” So sign our petition to help him with his decision.
