Vick Pleads Guilty to Dogfighting, Will Go to Prison

(ex) Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has accepted a guilty plea deal. He will plead guilty to the federal dogfighting case and is scheduled to appear in court next Monday to determine his punishment.

After consulting with his family over the weekend, Vick came to the decision of pleading guilty. He apologized again. He "is accepting full responsibility for his actions."

Vick was apparently negotiating for a shorter prison sentence with hopes of 1 year or under. However it is more likely to be 18-36 months.

Good luck Mr. Vick.
