Vick trial date set for November

AP/Jonathan Ernst Michael Vick plead not guilty at his arraignment today in Richmond, Virginia. Vick will receive a jury trial which is set to begin on November 26, which will coincide with the end of Week 12 of the NFL schedule.

Vick may face up to six years in federal prison and pay around $350,000 in fines if convicted.

According to Lester Munson of ESPN Vick could face further charges down the road due to a “superceding indictment” that will be filed by prosecutors by the end of the month. Charges could be added or eliminated, but per Munson, it is likely they will be added.

    I hope the max penalty is given and I am tired of seeing the video of the dogs actually fighting on tv. He should be fired and the entire team investigated because I am positive someone else knew. This will be one trial I will follow. This can not be overlooked any longer. The treatment of a animal like that makes you wonder what respect he has for life for everyone. Nike should make sure that people representing them and all the other companies that their representatives are pure as the driven snow. Children idolize these players behaviors and what kind of message is that sending them?

    I wish i was the judge that will try this player for animal cruelty. There were 66 dogs involved …. shame on you, Michael. They had to be euthanized because of you and your avarice Michael Vick should be banned from playing professional footbal. Many of our children looked up to you as their role model. Shame on you Michael.We don’t need people like you in the public eye.

  3. I think it’s very sad how people are so quick to judge and believe the worst about someone. None of us were there so we do not know what happened. Of course in a situation like this every man is for himself even if it means lying on the next man to save himself. What ever happened to innocent until proven guilty. The majority of comments i’ve read is negative remarks and this is just people jumping on the band wagon. Half of them do not care one way or the other, but if they feel they could play a part in taking someone else down then they are all for it. Michael keep your head up and remember only God can judge you. Those same ones who are talking negative about you God will bridle their tongues. As far as the kids are concerned the parents should explain to them that none of this have been proven to be true and that a person is innocent until proven guilty. You all are a bunch of hypocrits, because if it was someone you loved or cared for you would definitely give them the benefit of doubt. Vick pray everyday and remember prayer changes things because there is power in prayer. I love you and will always be your #1 FAN.

  4. yeah, he certainly appears to have been railroaded. he has been set up; no one would be dumb enough to leave dozens of carcasses buried on their property. sho’ wouldn’t, he’s guilty as sin. his poor judgement takes a backseat to stupidity on this one

  5. This one is a no brainer. I hope Vick gets whast coming to him. I hope he gets the max and thrown out of the NFL. Let the other convicts take care of him like he took care of these poor innocent animals. I hope your riped apart in jail.
