Vick Cops Plea

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Michael Vick has signed a plea agreement with the federal prosecutors in his dogfighting case. In the deal, Vick pleads guilty to count one of transporting a dog across state lines for purposes related to dog fighting and sponsoring a dog in animal fighting.

Though Vick agrees to cooperate fully with the investigation into his operation, Vick acknowledges that the judge is not bound by the agreement and may choose to impose the maximum sentence of 5 years imprisonment plus $250,000 in fines. Furthermore, Vick forfeits the right to his 53 dogs and any assets related to the illegal activity.

The federal prosecutors agree not to bring new charges at a later date related to this criminal venture and recommend the minimum punishment for Vick under law.
