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 is taking the losers way out. By taking a plea agreement he is getting out of much of the prison time he would have received in a trial with a guility verdict. The prosecuter must really hate dogs and he does not appear to have any nads. Now, I blame both of them for the injustice.
This is a cowards way out. No respect for Vick. He is nothing more than a chump.
His next victim will probably be human.

I do believe he should be in "trouble" for his somewhat heinous crimes but the individuals on this comment block are insane, saying that he should be going away for a long time or whatnot. These are just dogs, not humans. And let me again say i do believe this is wrong but to be sentenced to prison for suspected, and i say this word loosely, behavior is unreal. Nothing more than a fine should be given to him and maybe, just maybe should the NFL suspend him for more than just a few games, no more than this year. I just dont understand the huge deal about a dog fighting ring, people should be thinking of other more "important" businesses going on in the world.

All this is for nothing if the NFL doesnt kick him out. Pete Rose got banned from baseball for BETTING on games, this is no different.

Did you know that dog fighting is legal in six U.S. states and considered a sport in many countries around the world. Why is he being punished for something that is so widely practiced other places. I think you guys are overreacting like always when it a person of color. Check-in your own back yards there's probably far worst going on.....

GO Vick!!!!
GO OJ!!!!!

The only thing this douche bag can do to make this better is spread liver pate on his balls and lay down amongst some hungry pit bulls.
