RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A judge has sentenced Michael Vick to 23 months in prison for his role in a dog fighting conspiracy that involved gambling and killing pit bulls that did not perform up to expectations.
U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson could have sentenced the suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback to up to five years today in Richmond, Virginia.
Vick pleaded guilty in August, admitting that he bankrolled the "Bad Newz Kennels'' dog fighting operation and that he helped kill six to eight dogs.
