Mike Vick Enters Prison Early – Claims He Violated His Parole

: RICHMOND, Va. - Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick surrendered to U.S. marshals Monday, three weeks before his sentencing on a dogfighting charge. He was being held in a regional jail.

Vick is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 10 on the dogfighting conspiracy charge, but turned himself in because he was anticipating a prison term, according to a court document. Vick could be sentenced to up to five years in prison.

"From the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, and his self-surrender further demonstrates that acceptance," Billy Martin, one of Vick's lawyers, said in a statement. "Michael wants to again apologize to everyone who has been hurt in this matter and he thanks all of the people who have offered him and his family prayers and support during this time."

Vick is being held at Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw until his sentencing, U.S. marshals told The Associated Press. The mixed-gender facility houses about 450 inmates.

The order filed in U.S. District Court said "Vick has indicated his desire to voluntarily enter custody prior to his sentencing hearing. It appearing appropriate to do so, the U.S. Marshal is ordered to take custody of the Defendant immediately upon his surrender."

The order added that Vick was taken into custody "based solely on his desire to begin his period of incarceration prior to his sentencing hearing and not because of violation of any condition of his bond."

In an e-mail sent to the AP, the U.S. attorney's office confirmed Vick's surrender but declined further comment.

Vick's decision to begin serving time before sentencing was approved by the judge and Vick's lawyers.

This summer, Vick and three co-defendants pleaded guilty to charges related to a dogfighting operation financed by Vick. Bad Newz Kennels was based at a property owned by Vick in rural Surry County.

The NFL suspended Vick indefinitely and without pay.

Vick and his co-defendants still face state felony dogfighting charges.

All you Vick defenders, remember this - He thought nothing of putting a noose around a defenseless dog's neck (who would never have betrayed him) and hung it. And when one little fighter prevailed in life from the hanging, dragged it to a container and finished it off by drowing it. God Bless those poor pups who weren't "killing machine" enough for Mike Vick.

soabuvmistress: Your 'Iraq is more important than dog killing' is one that can be used by those who complained about 'exaggerated outrage' of the Jenna 6 incident. Just Remember; Everything is relative. However, just an FYI: Hundreds of thousands have marched in outrage over the war in Iraq. Just like the the of thousands did in Jenna. And Some of those same people marching also abhorr what Mike Vick did and are allowed to express their disgust at that, too.

Who cares about some killer dogs when we have innocent men & women getting killed over in Iraq,because of George W's lies !

Dutchess1: First off, I never said that Iraq is more important than dog killing, but people are more important than dogs. Some countries eat dogs, Is that okay. Here we can slaughter cows, pigs, turkeys, chicken, deer, etc., but a dog is sacred. I think what Vick did was terrible, but I have seen much worse done to human beings and where's the publicity surrounding that? Why don't child molesters and pedophiles get that same coverage? If a child is raped or killed, the story is no big deal, just another statistic. I'm just saying to be real and stop focusing so much on animals when humans are being raped, killed, and mistreated daily with no little to no news coverage.

I am not going to get back into the whole "well this is more wrong than that" argument that has been overly rehashed. He knew the law. He broke the law. You break the law, you get punishment for it. It doesnt matter that someone out there did something worse, or that someone out there got off of something...You break the law, you get caught, you get punished...end of story.

Apparently Vick had some fake ass fans, before all this dog fighting business started. We are so quick to turn on people when they are down. If you really watched football the media was aways on a crusade to tear him down. First he wasn't intelligent to be a quarterback, then they made him a closet homo. And of course because white people are enraged about dog fighting black people are too. All we do is mimic our opressor, and we wonder why the world continues to disrepect, while we giggle and dance.Wake the f..k up.

WTF do you guys even READ the titles before you make them HEADLINES????? MIKE VICK ENTERS PRISON EARLY - CLAIMS HE VIOLATED HIS PAROLE NOWHERE HAVE I READ THIS B.S. NOW WHAT I HAVE READ WAS (AND BELIEVE ME NOTHING WAS MENTIONED OF A PROBATION VIOALATION HE TURNED HIMSELF IN VOLUNTARILY: Michael Vick surrenders to begin jail time before sentencing By DAVE FORSTER, The Virginian-Pilot © November 19, 2007 | Last updated 7:13 PM Nov. 19 Michael Vick voluntarily checked into jail Monday to begin serving his dogfighting sentence, three weeks before he knows how long he will be locked up. Vick’s surprising and unusual decision will likely start the clock on whatever prison term he receives and allow him to dodge a public spectacle on Dec. 10 when he he appears in a federal courthouse in Richmond to be formally sentenced. Previous court appearances by the Newport News native and former Atlanta Falcons quarterback have produced wide media coverage and crowds of supporters and protesters. Because he is in custody, Vick will be transported to the courtroom by the U.S. Marshals Service, which will escort him through a private entrance for inmates. Vick’s attorney, Billy Martin, released a statement Monday saying that “from the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, and his self-surrender further demonstrates that acceptance.” Martin said Vick “wants to again apologize to everyone who has been hurt in this matter, and he thanks all the people who have offered him and his family prayers and support during this time.” Vick was suspended indefinitely by the NFL before the season. His surrender Monday capped an eventful period of supervised release that began Aug. 27, when he pleaded guilty to a felony charge of conspiring to run a dogfighting and gambling venture from 2001 to spring 2007 in Surry County. On Sept. 13, Vick submitted a urine sample that tested positive for marijuana, an offense that earned him a curfew and an electronic monitoring device. Five days later he took an eight-hour animal empathy course with People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Vick’s girlfriend gave birth to a daughter a few weeks ago, and last week he sold the Surry County property used for his dogfighting venture. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson accepted Vick’s request to surrender. He signed an order for the U.S. Marshal Service to take custody of him “based solely on his desire to begin his period of incarceration prior to his sentencing hearing,” the court order said. One local lawyer who’s been practicing for 35 years said he’s never heard of a defendant turning himself in early to begin a prison term that hadn’t yet been handed down. “I’ve never heard of that,” said Hunter Sims, a Norfolk defense attorney and former federal prosecutor. “My clients all want to avoid that day as long as possible.” John Hackman, chief deputy for the U.S. Marshal region, said he couldn’t recall the last time a defendant surrendered before sentencing, but he said it wasn’t incredibly unusual. “Sometimes people do that for convenience,” Hackman said. Vick surrendered to the U.S. Marshal Service in the federal courthouse in Richmond and was taken to the Northern Neck Regional Jail in Warsaw, about 50 miles northeast of the capital, said the jail’s superintendent, Jeffery Frazier . The jail currently has about 450 inmates, about 300 of which are in federal custody, Frazier said. He said he could not discuss the arrangements of Vick’s jail stay or whether the storied quarterback is being held in the general population. Hackman said he did not know the full details of Vick incarceration at in relation to the other inmates, but he said some arrangements have been made. “We do have certain special situations there,” he said. Vick’s federal charge carries a maximum prison sentence of five years, but the plea agreement he signed includes recommended sentencing guidelines that call for between one year and 18 months. Two of Vick’s co-defendants are scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 30. The third is scheduled for Dec. 14. The men still face state charges related to dogfighting and animal cruelty in Surry County. The next court hearing in that case is next Tuesday. But the defense attorneys have said they will try to have those charges dismissed because the men have already been prosecuted in federal court. Vick also has a Nov. 29 hearing in Richmond Circuit Court in a civil matter involving a former agent who sued the NFL star over a contract. Sims, the former federal prosecutor, said Vick likely would serve time in a minimum security facility. Vick could be released early to a halfway house, Sims said. How Monday’s decision affects Vick’s football future remains unclear. The Atlanta Falcons still hold Vick’s rights and are expected to retain them while the club attempts to recoup some of his signing bonus. An arbitrator ruled in October that the team is entitled to $19.9 million, but the NFL Players Association has appealed. Vick could face further sanctions from the NFL, even after he is released from prison. League commissioner Roger Goodell appears to be waiting to see what sentence the court imposes next month. Goodell suspended the quarterback indefinitely without pay after Vick made his plea agreement. The commissioner’s suspensions have typically come with terms that have to be met in order for a player to be reinstated. Assuming Vick met those conditions and was released by the Falcons, he would be free to sign with another team at any time, much like Ricky Williams did with the Miami Dolphins last week. That would depend on a team being willing to endure the possible backlash that could come from signing Vick. “I would say somebody will certainly give him a tryout, if he has no issues between now and when he is reinstated,” said Charlie Casserly, former General Manger of the Houston Texans. “Somebody will give him a tryout and offer him a contract.” How Vick would fare would depend on how long he’s out of the game, Casserly said. “Common sense says he won’t be same player. A lot of his success says was in his ability to run the ball.” IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE EASTERN DISTRICT OF VIRGINIA RICHMOND DIVISION UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ) ) v. ) Criminal No. 3:07CR274-04-HEH ) MICHAEL VICK, ) ) Defendant. ) ORDER (Ordering U.S. Marshal to Take Custody of Defendant upon Voluntary Self-Surrender) THIS MATTER is before the Court after Defendant Michael Vick has indicated his desire to voluntarily enter custody prior to his sentencing hearing.

AND WHAT ABOUT THE PENALTTIES GIVEN TO THE AVERAGE JOE/JANE FOR DOING THE SAME THING? 10/5/07 On Thursday three people who pleaded guilty to charges in a local dog fighting ring were sentenced. Evelyn Lillard, Antonio Wilson and Demetrius Thompson were among 19 people arrested after a federal investigation earlier this year. Three Sentenced In Local Dog Fighting Ring Case A judge sentenced all three to serve two years probation and perform 200 hours of community service. They also have to pay restitution and court costs. Chesapeake woman gets 3 years for dogfighting, drugs By JOHN HOPKINS, The Virginian-Pilot © November 17, 2007 CHESAPEAKE A 40-year-old former Chesapeake woman was sentenced to three years in prison Friday for dog fighting and drug convictions. Lisa Washington, who lived in the 2700 block of Seven Eleven Road, was charged in 2006 with dogfighting and illegal drug activities, along with Alfred Taylor, her former boyfriend. Taylor has not been sentenced. Circuit Judge Randy Smith sentenced Washington to a total of 10 years in prison for cocaine distribution and dog fighting. He suspended seven years of the sentence on the condition that Washington complete supervised probation upon her release. Washington also was fined $100 for a misdemeanor marijuana possession conviction. Assistant Commonwealth’s Attorney Amy James acknowledged that Washington was addicted to cocaine and was the less culpable of the two defendants. Authorities seized 17 pit bulls and training equipment from the couple’s rural home. Ten of the dogs had signs of healed wounds. Dogs “are victims when they are maintained in this environment and treated this way,” James said prior to sentencing. Washington’s attorney, Eric Cronin, argued that she had lived with Taylor for only six months and that none of the illegal activity would have come to light if Washington hadn’t called police. Taylor, 54, is now a resident of Portsmouth and is scheduled to be sentenced early next year.

The only difference is the fact that dog fighting is illegal people! He IS NOT GOING TO JAIL FOR FIGHTING DOGS OR ANIMAL CRUELTY. He is going to jail for what amounts to racketeering.

@ sosincere- um... so hunting serves the purpose of controlling the ANIMAL POPULATION. That's why in MANY places across the nation, it is actually encouraged during some months of the year to go deer hunting. Alternativly, there are also rules and laws that serve to PROTECT the animals during the remainder of the year (nesting season, mating season, etc.) WHAT KIND OF PURPOSES DID MICHAEL VICK SERVE WHEN HE TORTURED INNOCENT ANIMALS!! WHAT KIND OF A LOSER(!!!!!!!!!!!) FINDS JOY, PLEASURE, AND FUN FROM KILLING/RAPING/TORTURING ANIMALS?!?!?! Maybe since i'm a 'yankee' i dont understand because i heard on the news that it's 'big' down south. For the people who say "well, they're pit bulls, that's what they're for; they were bred for that kind of treatment (dogfighting). GUESS WHAT?!?! They thought the same things about BLACKS being slaves a few hundred of years ago-- WE'RE MEANT FOR HARD LABOR BECAUSE OF HOW WE'RE BUILT, OUR WOMEN ARE MEANT FOR BREEDING BECAUSE OF THEIR HIPS! So actually sosincere, I'm NOT a nutcase. You on the other hand sound like a Mike Vick STAN who would probably defend him if he raped and murdered a 6 year old boy. You're calling people pathetic because they're expressing their thoughts and opinions that are different from your own... now im calling you IGNORANT since you're a close minded, animal abuse co-defendant c*unt!

My dad used to hunt and sometimes they may not kill the deer with the first shot so they injure it and it dies slowly. Or they have to shoot it again to kill it. Sounds pretty cruel. Oh...but it's o.k because it's legal. Oh IT helps the population of deers, huh. NO ASS it helps the population of humans because we dont want to get overran by thier breeding and mess up our nice SUV'S by smacking them because we tear down their natural homes for our benifit. I bet that one deer shot in the head moaning in pain don't know about that hunter helping the deer population! So is it about cruelty or LAW with you. Cause Im confused. And so are you....hypocrite! I got a cute lil chiuaua that I want bred. Maybe he can practice on you. Im sure you will love it!

Sosincere-- you are soooo wack it's unbelieveable. My point about comparing us blacks and their perceptions of US and to what Mike Vick did obviously went over your country bumpkin head. Please stick to what you know which is NOTHING! I see you didnt respond to what I said about hunting and its policies... probably because it involved some kind of thought process that you obviously lack. Please sosincere, instead of posting 10 comments (because obviously what I said piss*d you off soooo much) go get a life! Michael Vick don't gove 2 f*cks about you.... but yet and still you are protecting a MURDERER. The bible didn't say thou shalt not kill BUT DOGS ARE AIGHT SINCE YOU MAKING PAPER DOG!! so he will be burning in h*ll with your a** too! And with that I have no further words for you... i have to return to my JOB. Responding to this will be fruitless as you will be speaking to yourself!

sosincere- you really are STUPID! Like forreal... did you graduate Middle School? Who feeds you this bullsh*t? really? Hunting is for protecting humans so that we don't run over deers? Are you kidding me? Really, you're making me so mad, not with your wack a** insults, but with your stupidity and LACK of education. You never got any of my points and it's so funny how there's 100 and 1 comments on here saying that Mike Vick is a piece of sh*t and that he should burn in jail, but you choose to go after me. Basically, in a nutshell, get a life, AND READ A BOOK!!!! TAKE A GED COURSE!! SOMETHING!! PLEASE!!!! It's not about law! It's about a sorry RICH, mutherfu*cker that can't take his a** out of the f*ckin country a** mentality. You got millions of dollars and instead of investing in some kind of organization to help young black males, you spend your money on an organization that tortures and kilss dogs!!!! Now i understand why you don't get it: YOU AND MIKE VICK ARE A BUNCH OF STUPID MUTHERF*CKERS!!!! BIRDS OF A FEATHER FLOCK TOGETHER. AND WITH THAT, I'M REALLY OUT!!!!

AGAIN....YOU READ A BOOK LAME. HUNTING IS TO CONTROLL THE POPULATION!!!!! WHAT IS POPULATION CONTROLL? WHO IS FOR THE BENIFIT OF. DO YOU REALLY THINK THE DEER GIVE A DAMN THAT THEIR POPULATION IS OUT OF CONTROLL. IT IS SO WE DON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THEM. IT IS BECAUSE THEY CAN OVERRUN OUR LIVING SPACE. YOU ARE THE UNEDUCATED ON! SO BLINDED BY EMOTION OF SOMEONE TALKING GREASY ABOUT YOUR LOVE AFFAIR WITH DOGS THAT YOU BLIND TO LOGIC!

Awwwww, poor little defenseless 180lb pit bull puppies with teeth like a T Rex. AINT NO DAMN DOG ON EARTH DEFENSELESS!!! These were killing machines to the point where they can't be adopted. What do yall think they were doing in the pit, givin each other dap talkin bout the game scores?!?! He shouldn't have killed them, but stop making it more than what it is. That being said, he should go to prison for that. BUT he is going to prison more so for the fact that he placed bets and made money off the multi-state enterprise than killing the dogs. And the chcken wing analogy is perfect. Chickens used to be living animals before you baste and lemon pepper them bitche$, so why is that an exception to the rule?

WineDine69 Flag post to all the M Vick defenders that are so worried about the men fighting in IRAQ, why aren't you there fighting with them? I just so happen to be a Mike Vick defender, and I'll explain that in a little while, but back to you....I SUPPORT THE TROOPS, but I will NEVER sign my life on a dotted line for anyone!!!!!! I don't agree with the killing the damn dogs, but I also don't agree with first off sending, yet along putting our babies on the front line to fight a imaginary azz war. I don't agree with butchering other animals as a meal, as well as hunting them, so theres your answer on why noone is dumb enuff to take their azz across seas to fight for a mufukka that dont give a damn about nothing but $$$$ and REVENGE!!! Your life, your kids life, or anyone else's is not a part of his agenda in this war!!

@slb2026 Deer were here first. What right do we actually have to control their population? When a deer is lose, what happens? They tear the hood off your Cadillac! When a pit bull is lose, what happens? They tear the head off your child. They are both living animals that ARE NOT protected by the Constituion. Aint no pits in the Declaration of Independence. Animals. He profited off them, that's why he's going to jail. As for burning in hell.....WOW. For some dogs? With teeth?

@WineDine69 - -I love ur name also...lol But I forgot to explain why I support Vick.... I just don't agree that they should dig the man up the way they are trying. True enough, he is DEAD AZZ WRONG, but to strip him of everything is ridiculous!! They fired him, took his endorsements (which I agree with), fined him, & sending him to jail...I think thats cruel and unusual punishment!! There is nothing else that can be taken from this man but his pride and they're trying their best to take that from him if they haven't already. The man did some things that are uncomprehendable, but when you've got bigger fish to fry (Osama BinLaden) and so many more serious issues (Child abuse, rape, neglect, our veterans are starving, our children are killing each other off if they are dying from lack of proper care because of no health issurance) to deal with then some dogs that are deemed vicious in most of the USA any damn wayz. Thats all I'm sayin

I don't understand why u r talking about his mom. u r really over stepping ur boundaries. That is her son but he is a grown ass man that made his own choices. leave her out of it. obviously your mom didn't raise u well. all u people that r upset about these fucking dogs (pitbulls) need to find something to do with yourselves. it is not even that serious trying to ruin the man's life over some dogs. i am sorry a dog's life is not more important than a human's. all u mike vick haters are probably the idiots that voted George Bush in for another term as our greatest president ever. Look at how well he is running our lovely country. that is y so many other countries are laughing up. Damn I love being an american. Shit I still can't believe all this over some killer a** dogs that kill people on a regular even when they are not provoked. It's cool trust M.Vick will be back u can bet on that!!!!!!!!!!! Vick fan forever

Chicken is not the same .... Now had he eaten THE DOGS he'd be free today .. lol ... if he'd made leather or used them for some purpose soapmaking, fur ... anything ... We eat cattle, make leather from them ... they are food ... Dogs are companion pets ... and we dont get them to be cruel to them ... to the people saying ppl are putting human life before a dogs.... How so ? What Human's life is at stake? What human is losing his life over a dogs? Vick isnt being killed. To those who say pedophiles should get more coverage, and humans are being raped and murdered everyday ... ummmm okay but who is raping and murdering them? Not dogs.... its OTHER Humans so who do you need to be mad at? it is true that Humans are the most intelligent and had dominion over the earth ...We also have to remember that along with that power also comes a moral responsibility. To go get an animal, train it to to destroy, kill, maim, etc. then when he doesnt do it well enough ... kill it in such a cruel way... its cruel. Dogs feel pain, dogs have feelings, and DOGS love humans .... they are loyal. i have a big rotweiler and I couldnt imagine making him fight if he didnt want to ... or hanging him, or hurting him in some other fashion... maybe i am a softy but when he looks at me I can understand him. We have a responsibility as the thinkers adn intelligent life forms to care for the other animals in the world .. nto saying everyone take home a pet .. btu you could do your part by ... just not kicking the next stray cat you see, or slamming fido's tail in the car door because you can .... and you cant take out your problems with the world on the animal ....they look to you as their master and you are cruel to it for no reason and it cant understand that ... and as they are trying to understand what they did to displease you, you try harder and harder to kill them... until it doesnt matter. Their lifeless body lays there.... and all the time ... they never understood what they did to displease their master so much to make him hatefully and violently kill them. I mean Shooting them would have been more humane... imagine you getting Beat senseless.... you knwo you dont feel good but then .... you get thrown in water with your arms broke and cant swim .... then when you float to the surface someone pushed you under to make sure you drown .. imagine the fear until you die ? Dogs feel the SAME THING !!!!! We are supposed to protect the lesser intelligent animals .. especially those that we have bred and domesticated ..... I wish that had been a silver fox or a wild wolf ... they'd a fought alright ... dogs and they woulda took a chunk outta his black ass too ..

SO SINSERE AND SLB2026 Deer hunting is a bad example ... I dunno where you are from but we dont kill deer for sport.... we eat the ones we kill. Hunting for the most part is for food. Just as Humans did before the advent of modern conveniences. Fishing is the same thing. Dogs were bread for diff tasks.. one of them .... hmmm HUNTING COMPANIONS.... LOL Yo both got totally off the subject ....Mike Vick did wrong and is going to jail. Thats the fact and the end of the argument .. people act as if he is getting death ... he committed a crime and he is going to jail the end. whether we like it or not or think he should get a black pass .... doesnt matter .... hes gonna be singing the prison blues come dec..... he might wanna take richard pryors advice ... and tell jokes ... to keep their mind off the booty .. LOL

agent b........ My sentments exactly! MLFexperience.......Thats nice you eat deer. And Im sure alot of folks do to. But I do know that SOME people hunt for the sport of it. They collect the heads like trophys. A lil vinicin is a added bonus but first and foremost they do it for the thrill. That might not be you but trust there are some who do. somad123........did I disrespect his mom? Did I call her a name? I commented on her job that he brought up while also pointing out that my brother is a peon in the same game he was trying to use to justify why he feels he knows so much about what none of us have a clue about! So sorry if it hurt you or his feelings. Just trying to illustrate a point! But my reccomendation would be don't hit if you don't wanna get hit back. Thats what I tell my 6 year old! P.S hypocritical much??????........you go cite me for calling out his mom but bring MINE into it by saying SHE didnt raise me well. Not Im not raising mine well, cause that is a jab at me. BUT you brought MY MOM into it......lol. PLEASE FALL BACK!

mlfexperience.......last thing on this topic. I have never been too jail. BUT I HEARD folks say they will die before they go back! POINT....No vick isn't dead but figuritively speaking they killed his life. I am not saying he does not need to be punished...but to what extent? Should his whole life been destroyed over this? Is this truely fair to you? Com'on like the other blogger said how that white girl child molester get a spot on dateline to flaunt her blondness fancy free when she seduced a 13 year old boy and blamed it on bi-polar disorder. But Vick got to go to prison...loose his career in football...all his money...ect. So in essence people are not SUPPORTING Vick or what he did. MOST think it was dead wrong. But what the so called supporters are actually up in arms about is the fact that the judicial system is hypocritical, and biased and the PUNISHMENT DON'T FIT THE CRIME! P.S again all of ya'll are so rah rah court...PLEASE PUNISH VICK cause he tortured animals. The court don't give a DARN about them dead dogs. Showing them 15 times a day is just to convict dude in the court of public opinion.He is going to jail because he was funding,and making money off a illegal betting operation! He is going to jail over white collar crime! ITS ALL ABOUT MONEY HERE IN THE US BABY!
