WAVY TV reports that Virginia Attorney General Bob McDonnell may take over the decision making process from Surry County prosecutor Gerald Poindexter on whether to charge Michael Vick on his involvement to suspected dogfighting and animal abuse that occurred on his property.
Earlier this week, investigators met to review evidence, but no charges were filed upon conclusion of the meeting. According to reports, Poindexter seems confident charges will be brought eventually, although no firm timetable has been expressed. Although it is yet unknown if Vick himself will be charged. Up until now, McDonnell has had no involvement in the case or investigation, and has admitted that he is only informed as much as the public has been.
