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."

The only people that are for him are either black or they are just like him they have
no conscience whatsoever.
He has no remorse, just look and his face will tell you that.
If anything he's mad he got caught.

#58...yeah, well child pornography is legal and acceptable in other countries, does that mean we should allow it to? and lets not forget slavery because it still exists in other countries...should we bring it back? As far as the 6 states in the US, please give us the names and we will be sure to email the government of that state.

Animal cruelty is sick and making animals fight for "entertainment" is cruel, not to mention the drowning, hangining and electricuting. This is not a race issue but a decency issue. I don't care if it were a white man, mexican, black, pink, purple, etc....Torturing an animal is wrong. PERIOD.

the only way he can make this up is to let every one is who is disgusted by his actions put HIM on a rape table and use a plunger on his ass....have a drawing---raising funds for an animal shelter---for someone to execute him when he doesn't 'perform' well....

Where is the Worlds Priority? I value a Human life over an animals any day. What he did was wrong, and I'm glad he's paying for it, BUT everyone's forgetting that kennels have done FAR worse things to animals! You hate to play the race card, but looking at the responses...you can only play the hand you're dealt.

What Mr. Vick participated in was not good. But he is not evil. He will do some time. But for those of you who wrote he is evil and that he should go away for a long time; remember: you have family members, friends, and acquaintances who have done worse: to humans.

We should all remember the old saying: those who live in glass houses should not throw stones. And the majority of household within the 50 states live in glass houses.

No, you just see middle aged, computer geek WHITE men hiding girls under their homes that they molested and killed or keeping body parts in their freezers, the list goes on and on....I never trust a middle aged white man alone with me...so you see WHITE folks doing a lot worse things then this!!! And I am not racist, I am half white myself!!! Just speakin the truth!

Good news, it seemed he was guilty. At least he is smart enough to admit it, and enter into a plea deal. I hope he does serve some prison time for his offenses. Studies show that if a person can harm an animal they can harm a person. I have no respect for this guy. I hope the team throws him off. There are lots of people who want to play football and would better represent the team. God bless those poor fur babies souls that died in such a horrible way. IMO

Idiots who defend him:

~ First of all, dogfighting is illegal in ALL 50 states.
~ Secondly, there is testimony that has Vick killing the animals as well. He was there.
~ Thirdly, at no time has Vick shown any remorse. The guy is hard-wired to believe that he is above all rules and laws. And he obviously is incapable of any compassion.

So get your facts straight.

The NFL is utterly stupid for allowing any of these jerks to come back and play.

I dearly hope Vick rots in jail.

I do not condon Mike's actions in any way, but what is so funny to me are these same people who are so much for putting him in jail for dogs dying, but some of these same people will let child molesters walk around, men beating women, men raping women. Crimes that involve people human life being taken and affected by other human beings.
When will all of us start standing up for the human side of life and treat humans better than animals? Food for thought!
