Vick sentenced to 23 months in prison

Story body

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick's involvement in a dogfighting conspiracy that involved gambling and killing pit bulls has earned him a 23-month sentence in prison. Vick, appearing this morning in a Richmond, Virginia, courtroom dressed in a black-and-white striped prison suit, could have been sentenced to up to five years. In court today, Vick acknowledged he used "poor judgment" and added that he was willing to "deal with the consequences." The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty in August, admitting that he bankrolled the "Bad Newz Kennels" dogfighting operation and that he helped kill six to eight dogs. In a plea agreement, Vick admitted providing money for bets on the fights but said he never shared in any winnings.
