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."

KEEP IN MIND....THE JUDGE DOES NOT HAVE TO ACCEPT THIS PLEA DEAL. THE JUDGE CAN MAKE HIM GO TO TRIAL WHICH I HOPE HE DOES BECAUSE I FEEL HE WOULD GET A LONGER SENTENCE....

PLEASE!!! So what you are telling me is that I can kill a woman drunk driving and do no time and continue playing in the NFL (Leonard Little/St. Louis Rams). I can conspire to distribute drugs and do 3 months in jail and play the same season (Jamal Louis/Cleveland Browns). I can push my pregnant wife to the floor and just get assigned for anger management (Randy Mcmichael/Miami Dolphins) and still play that season? But if I allow FIDO to fight with another dog I'm a felon, lose all my endorsements, and may not get another chance in the league? That ain't right and PETA can kiss my ass those bastards. I hope you boycott NFL games since most players wear furs in the winter time.

His own cohorts rolled over on his stupid ass. Did he really think he'd get away with dog fighting? He is one angry sob. He also flipped off his own fans during a game. Real nice guy huh? One fine piece of work.

Hey, douche bag.............there's a little clause in every NFL player's contract called:

"CONDUCT DETRIMENTAL". They have the power to pull the money rug right out from under Vick's A$$. HE'LL WISH HE SAVED ALL THAT DOG FIGHTING MONEY!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I wished he would get the death penalty for fighting the animals and any thing else he may have done against these dogs, people that abuse animals for there own pleasure should get the death penalty.These poor animals were trained to do these terriable things they are not mean unless some moran trains them this away .

He is a immoral person.

LIFE IS A GIFT FROM GOD. LIFE IS TOOOOOOOO SHORT THE WAY IT IS.

EVERY BREATH WE TAKE, YES EVEN AN ANIMAL IS A GIFT FROM GOD.


ANIMALS HAVE A NEURO CENTER, AS HUMANS. THEY CAN FEEL PAIN AND SUFFERING, EMOTIONS.

THIS PSYCHOTIC , ARROGANT SICK0 ( SERIAL KILLING)`THAT WOULD PROBABLY BE HIS NEXT KICK.

SERIAL KILLERS PROFILES HAVE NEARLY ALWAYS BEEN LINKED TO ANIMAL CRUELTY AND DEATH.

VICK THINKS HIS MULTIPLE MILLIONS WILL PAY HIS WAY.

HE SHOULD NEVER BE ABLE TO PLAY PRO AGAIN, or any paid sport.

HE IS A DISGUSTING HUMAN BEING(QUESTIONABLE?) human being!

MAY GOD HAVE MERCY ON THIS SICK INDIVIDUAL.

HE KILLED, AND TORTURED ANIMALS FOR THE LOVE OF DEATH, PAIN, AND MONEY, DRUGS, POWER.

PEOPLE WANTS THIS SICKO TO REPRESENT ATLANTA, ATLANTA FALCONS, AND PRO SPORTS, OR ANY SPORTS?????????????????

HE DOES NOT HAVE A CONSCIENCE. HE IS LIKE A SCOTT PETERSON?

re. him?

not so sure about this    

Something is wrong with this picture. He is likely going to jail for dog fighting. While he sits in jail, our society goes on killing unborn human babies because they are not wanted by their parents. No one raises an eyebrow at this, but kill a dog (!!!) and you go to jail.

Make this situation RIGHT???????

There is NOTHING he can do to right this wrong!!!!!

What a PATHETIC BASTARD!!!!!!!!!!!

If he doesn't receive any jail time for these crimes it is a complete failure of our justice system........................Do these poor dogs have any value in the eyes of society and the law!?!?! this is ridiculous!!!!!

the devils deed    

send him to Afganistan where it is the unofficial sport (dogfighting), and never let him back in the USA. He will fit in there along with his other friends. He has nothing to offer here anymore.

The Atlanta Falcons will have a bad season. Maybe one of their worst, with serious financial problems.

ANITA    

I think Vick's actions are dispicable and I hope this brings animal fighting a little more publicity. How could any human being resort to such gruesome and barbaric actions and call it sport. I think at the very least, he should be banned from professional football, but even that seems too easy for him. Pete Rose was banned for betting on baseball, what Vick did was much worse and I think his punishment should be to the full extent of the law and that the football commissioner take appropriate actions as well. It's not like he wasn't making a living already, greed will ALWAY come back to haunt those who are ruled by it.
