When Mike Vick was sentenced to 23 months in a federal prison back in August of 2007, I thought the punishment was a little ridiculous. While I don’t condone dog-fighting in anyway, two years in prison for killing dogs seemed a bit extreme. After all, there are far worse crimes being committed daily and some people don’t serve that much time for killing other people, let alone dogs.
So far Mike has served 15 of those 23 months, and if he’s lucky, he may only end up in prison for another month or so. Mike was facing another charge of promoting dogfighting back in Virginia to which he plead guilty this morning in exchange for probation and an extended sentence. Though the real reason Vick pled guilty to the Virginia charges was so he can be eligible to move into a halfway house in January.
