Michael Vick to Judge:

I'm Guilty As Charged

8/20/2007 3:22 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0820_michael_vick_bn_getty-1Michael Vick just plea bargained his dogfighting criminal case. 

A federal grand jury was scheduled to hear testimony today. His co-defendants have already struck deals and turned on the NFL star.

We're told Vick has pleaded guilty to some charges. We're investigating.

According to one report, Vick will likely get a prison sentence -- we don't know the duration.

The report claims that next Monday, Vick will enter a guilty plea to charges of felony conspiracy. Vick's lawyer is quoted as saying, "Mike's accepting full responsibility. He's going to do everything he can personally and professionally to make this situation right."

UPDATE: The NFL has issued the following statement: "We are aware of Michael Vick's decision to enter a guilty plea to the federal charges against him and accept responsibility for his conduct. We totally condemn the conduct outlined in the charges, which is inconsistent with what Michael Vick previously told both our office and the Falcons. We will conclude our own review under the league's personal conduct policy as soon as possible. In the meantime, we have asked the Falcons to continue to refrain from taking action pending a decision by the commissioner."

He won't get as much time as he deserves but let's hope his career is over. True killers think nothing of taking the life of animals.

NOT GUILTY. His buddies were guilty not him.

SINCE OJ YOU FOLKS THINK EVERY BROTHER IS GUILTY AND HE WASN'T EITHER.

VICK PLEADED ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS HIS HOUSE AND HE TOOK SOME RESPONSIBILITY.

HE JUST PLEADED SO HE COULD GO ON WITH HIS LIFE.

NOT GUILTY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hey Harvey, etc., this news item is not news as you left out any details of his plea. So all us minions have to comment on is information already known. If you've nothing pertinent to say, then say nothing.
