Will Michael Vick Accept A Plea Deal?

Two co-defendants in the Michael Vick dogfighting case pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge Friday in federal district court and agreed to "fully cooperate" with prosecutors building a case against Vick, the Atlanta Falcons quarterback.
Two co-defendants in the Michael Vick dogfighting case pleaded guilty to a conspiracy charge Friday in federal district court and agreed to "fully cooperate" with prosecutors building a case against Vick, the Atlanta Falcons quarterback.

Purnell Peace of Virginia Beach and Quanis Phillips of Atlanta become the third co-defendants to plead guilty of conspiracy to travel interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities and conspiring to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture.
The walls are closing in on Michael Vick as they should. Anyone who could participate in the sadistic cruelty outlined in these chagres does not deserve to walk free among us.
In April 2007, according to Phillips's statement, he, along with Peace and Vick, "tested" dogs by "putting the dogs through fighting sessions . . . to determine which animals were good fighters."

The three men "executed approximately eight dogs that did not perform well."

The dogs were killed "by various methods including hanging and drowning," according to the documents.
Real justice would be to put Mr. Vick in the ring with a pack of these dogs and see what happens. He didn't need the money so you have to wonder why he would take such a risk. It would appear that he is a sadistic low life. I hope the prosecutors will throw the book at him. I would love to see a plea deal fall apart and have him face a lengthly prison sentence.

His NFL contract should be cancelled and he should never grace the playing field again. It is the only response that should be accepted from the NFL.

I think Vick will accept a deal because in the end, wealth and fame will enable him to return to the lifestyle he arrogantly lives.

Probably you are right but the pressure will be on the prosecutors to make an example of him. in this case his fame and wealth may very well work against him.
