Michael Vick Will Have to Appear in Court

Former NFL quarterback Michael Vick won't be allowed to plead guilty to dogfighting charges by video conference.

Vick's lawyers had requested that he be allowed to enter the plea from federal prison in Leavenworth, Kan., where he is serving a two-year term since admitting he bankrolled a dogfighting operation and helped execute dogs.

But citing high public interest in the case, Surry County Circuit Judge Samuel Campbell said it would be better for Vick to appear in person.
