For those confused about the pending Vick plea, that are claiming he is a dog killer, gambler, etc...
Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick will not admit to killing dogs or gambling on dog fights, as detailed in his indictment, when he enters a guilty plea in a Richmond, Va., federal court Monday, a source close to the case has told ESPN. Instead, the one count of conspiracy that Vick will plead to will admit guilt to the charge of interstate commerce for the purpose of dogfighting.
The source told ESPN that Vick's defense team met with federal attorneys Thursday afternoon to determine the "summary of facts" to which Vick will plead, and that his attorneys believed they had a deal. The source said Vick maintains he never killed dogs and never gambled on a dog fight.
So, clearly, if this account proves to be accurate, the Federal government is satisfied with Vick's admission.
One would suspect if the government felt they had such an air tight case against Vick for the gambling and dog killing, that they would either require admission in the plea or pursue trial.
Hopefully, Mr. Vick learns a lesson from this.
And, instead of attempting to regain the fame and glory of football stardom after his incarceration, he returns to private citizenry and stays out of the public spot light.
We would hate that spot light to turn into a laser sight again.
