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."

Well    

Good. Go to jail you sick bastard. However, once your time is done if you are ready to turn your life around the public should allow you to do so. If he is going to jail, there is no need to take his job and livlihood to. But only if you go to jail.

Haha suckers...    

To Vick's lawyer: Vick will never be able to make right what he's done, and what his $ has enabled others to do to those poor, innocent dogs.

Finally, someone owning up to what they did. He should suffer dearly for the absolutely uttermost cruel things he did to those poor dogs. With any luck his career will also be over... but someone will end up signing him.

tired of cry baby    

i cannot belive how many millions he's losing over this, but when you hear how the dogs died, it shows how classless a human he is. normal people do not do thing like that. i just hope he dumps all the hanger on'ers. let them go work at micky-d's while he's in jail. this is just a all around bad deal for everyone. i could never hurt a dog. to think how he killed these dogs, just makes me sick. learn from this michael!!!!!!!!!!!!!

His attorney says, "Mike wants to make it right". He should almost drown to be followed with electrocution. The public will execute the worthless bastard. Hope the sponsors of the team are paying attention.

This prick should be abused in the same way those poor animals were. Going to jail isn't enough. I hope he rots in hell.
