Michael Vick Plea Agreement Has Been Filed
Multiple media outlets are reporting that federal prosecutors and attorneys for Michael Vick filed Vick's plea agreement in federal court today.
The Washington Post reports that details of the agreement are not available. ESPN reports that Vick admits in the agreement to financing a dog fighting ring but not to gambling or killing dogs. Vick is expected to formally enter the plea in a federal courthouse on Monday.
ESPN has been reporting since Thursday night that Vick's guilty plea would not include any confessions of gambling or killing dogs, as an admission of such acts could end his NFL career. Both of ESPN's legal analysts, Lester Munson and Roger Cossack, expressed skepticism about such a deal.
Vick is due in Judge Henry Hudson's courtroom on Monday. Hudson could choose to reject the plea deal, and he does not have to follow the recommended prison sentence, which has been reported as 12 to 18 months.
