Vick to plead guilty

Michael Vick's lawyer said Monday the NFL star will plead guilty to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges, putting the Atlanta Falcons quarterback's career in jeopardy and leaving him subject to a prison term. This charge is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine. Prosecutors have yet to formally agree to the plea, a source told ESPN's Kelly Naqi.

"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," lead defense attorney Billy Martin said in a statement. "Michael is prepared to take full responsibility for allowing any and all of this to happen. He needs to put all of this behind him. He's 27 years old and he has a full life ahead of him. He wants to get back to the life he had before these issues."

Vick's plea hearing will be Aug. 27, Martin said.

The only answers remaining are how long Vick will be behind bars and if his plea includes any more details of his involvement. When the Ron Mexico STD story broke a few years ago, who would have thought it would be a blessing in disguise. There is no better sodomy deterrent than the threat of having your dick turned into cottage cheese.
