Default Vick cops a plea.

Quote:
Vick agrees to plead guilty to dogfighting charges
By LARRY O'DELL, Associated Press Writer
August 20, 2007



RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- More than football, Michael Vick's freedom is the question now.

With three associates prepared to testify that he brutally executed dogs and bankrolled gambling, the NFL star agreed Monday to "accept full responsibility" for his role in a dogfighting ring and plead guilty to federal conspiracy charges.

Worries about playing time will have to wait while Vick faces prison time -- from one to five years.

The maximum term is five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, although federal sentencing guidelines likely would call for less. Defense attorneys would not divulge details of the plea agreement or how much time Vick can expect to serve.

However, a government official, speaking on condition of anonymity because the terms are not final, told The Associated Press that prosecutors will recommend a sentence of a year to 18 months.

The official said such a sentence would be more than what is usually recommended for first-time offenders, reflecting the government's attempt to show that animal abusers will receive more than a slap on the wrist. U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson is not bound by prosecutors' recommendations or the sentencing guidelines and will have the final say.

Twenty-five days after he declared that he looked forward to clearing his name, Vick said through defense lawyer Billy Martin that he will plead guilty. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 27.

"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," Martin said in a statement. "Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter."

The NFL noted in a statement that the Atlanta Falcons quarterback's admission wasn't in line with what he told commissioner Roger Goodell shortly after being charged.

"We totally condemn the conduct outlined in the charges, which is inconsistent with what Michael Vick previously told both our office and the Falcons," the NFL said.

The league, which barred Vick from training camp, said it has asked the Falcons to withhold further action while the NFL's own investigation wraps up.

The Falcons said they were "certainly troubled" by news of the plea, but would withhold further comment in compliance with Goodell's request.

Gene Upshaw, executive director of the NFL Players Association, said in a statement:

"We believe the criminal conduct to which Mr. Vick has pled guilty today cannot be condoned under any circumstances. Speaking personally, as I have previously stated, the practice of dog fighting is offensive and completely unacceptable. I can only hope that Mr. Vick, who is young man, will learn from this awful experience."
Goddamn.

The case can still be made that Vick is, in fact, innocent...but not without exposing him as a complete and utter dumbass. Well, I don't think anyone thought he was a candidate for Mensa in the first place but...

The guy's gonna probably do at least a year in the hole. Here's hoping it's hard time.

So how long do you think he will/should get?

What do you think Roger Goodell's going to do with him?

How long after the gavel drops do you think Goodell will make a statement?

Has Michael Vick possibly played in his last NFL game?

Discuss.

Late.

LT had 31 td's. I think that made a couple highlight reels, without relying on lame gimmicks, or ron mexico alias's

Vick is fucking done with. But some asshole like Davis or Jones will pay him when he gets out, in like 2010. Rog should ban him for life though.

Fuck that. I don't want Vick as a Cowboy. He's so fucking overrated as a quarterback.

You're such a kidder, buddy

If we didn't have Romo I could see Jones going after him.

Well...now that Atlanta is out of contention for the NFC Championship, maybe the Cowboys have a better chance

The bar is set awful low over there in the NFC....

Since when was Atanta a serious condender?

Since when was Vick a good QB?

I'd take Harrington over Vick anyday. I'd say they're better off now.

The Raiders would probably be the only team he could play for once he gets out of the pen. Davis loves that shit.

Somebody's gotta tell that fucking rotting corpse that this isn't 1979 anymore.

Or maybe don't...the joke's just too funny.

Link to Vick's public statement.

http://www.nfl.com/videos?videoId=09000d5d801e2924

He took "full responsibility" and no questions... Not bad as far as public statements go. It's all just words though. See ya December 10th for sentencing.

You know what, Vick's apology is horseshit. He's only sorry that he got caught and is going to jail. He said his actions were immature. Um that's the under statement of the fucking year, dumbass. Your actions were tasteless and disgusting.

Ya know what else bothers me? He thought he'd be able to slime his way through it so he pleaded not guilty originally and said he was gonna "clear his good name", but only did he do a 180 when his boys dimed his sorry ass out and he knew if he went to trial, his sentence would be a lot harsher.

Con-Vick-ted Felon I hope you get buttfucked in jail you piece of shit.

They dug up the dead dogs first, and he claimed his innocence. His boys ratted him out, then he decided to cop a plea.
