    Vick Pleads Not Guilty

    Falcons star QB scheduled for late November trial
    Thursday July 26, 2007 4:15PM

    RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick pleaded not guilty Thursday to federal dogfighting allegations and was released without bond until a Nov. 26 trial.

    The Atlanta Falcons quarterback and three others entered their pleas in U.S. District Court to charges involving competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting, and conducting the enterprise across state lines. Federal prosecutors allege the operation -- known as Bad Newz Kennels -- operated on Vick's property in Surry County.

    U.S. Magistrate Dennis W. Dohnal, in releasing the defendants without bond, said the judicial system is grounded on the principle that a defendant is innocent until proven guilty "no matter how heinous the allegations may be."

    Among the conditions set for all the defendants is that they surrender their passports, that they not travel outside their immediate area without court approval, and that they do not sell or possess any canine.

    In addition, Vick was ordered to surrender any animal breeder or kennel license.

    Vick arrived at the courthouse at 3 p.m. in a black sport utility vehicle and was booed by a crowd of hundreds as he emerged.

    Vick, in a dark suit and blue shirt, looked straight ahead as he walked up the ramp to the courthouse and did not respond to reporters.

    The allegations detailed in a graphic, 18-page indictment sparked protests by animal rights groups at the headquarters of the NFL and the Falcons, and NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has barred Vick from training camp while the league investigates.

    Falcons owner Arthur Blank said the team wanted to suspend Vick for four games, the maximum penalty a team can assess a player, but the NFL asked him to wait. Instead, Blank has told his embattled player to focus on his legal problems, not football.

    Thursday, the Falcons opened their first camp under coach Bobby Petrino.

    I've never really been one to wish bad things to people, but I hope he gets the stiffist possible punishment and I hope he get's raped everyday in jail. Unless by some miracle he really is innocent then he is the largest pile of crap to ever play pro ball

    Falcons | Plea deal could mean bad news for Vick
    Sat, 28 Jul 2007 13:35:10 -0700

    Jeremy Redmon, of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, reports Tony Taylor has a plea agreement hearing scheduled for Monday, July 30. Taylor is one of the men facing federal dog fighting charges along with Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick. The plea hearing could mean Taylor has agreed to cooperate with federal prosecutors. Criminal defense attorney Steven D. Benjamin said, "This could be very bad news for Vick. he is pleading guilty, he is cooperating with the government."

    Easy tiger....let's keep things in perspective. At worst, Vick has no compassion for the canines and has some sort of addiction to gambling and violence. We humans have developed some strong affection for our pets, but most of us eat animals and don't worry about what sort of treatment they get before they hit the dinner table.

    Let's try and not wish horrible things for MV. Hopefully the truth will be revealed in due time.

    I agree with UtterBlitz that your punishment might be a bit harsh,but you do have every right to say it,I have a hard time trying to figure out how Vick could be so stupid,he had to know this is not normal behavior and If not then take some of your millions and hire someone to teach you right from wrong and common sense because it's pretty clear your parents didn't.
