Animal lover, Michael Vick, has accepted a plea deal for dogfighting charges. He will plead guilty to felony conspiracy next Monday. By pleading guilty Michael will dodge a few more charges against him. Prosecutors wanted a prison sentence of 18-36 months. Michael's lawyers were trying to get that down to 24-months max.
Michael's lawyers also wanted to know the future of his NFL career before entering a plea. They are reportedly have talks with the National Football League Commissioner's office about his future.
Michael's dogfighting partners have already had their plea deals approved. They apparently helped Michael murder around 8 dogs that weren't performing well in the dogfights.
2 years for murdering 8 dogs?! Add a couple of numbers to that and then we're talking.
Ugh, this is such a downer.
His lawyer said, "Mike's accepting full responsibility. He's going to do everything he can personally and professionally to make this situation right."
