According to a CNN report Michael “Sick” Vick has been sentenced to 23 months in a federal prison for financing a dogfighting ring and helping to kill the dogs that did not perform well. The punishment was meted out at the end of a 90-minute sentencing hearing in federal court in Richmond, Virginia.
The ghetto thug appropriately received his sentence dressed in a black-and-white striped prison suit. He offered his apologies to his family and to U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Judge Hudson was unmoved to sympathy.
You need to apologize also to the millions of young people who look up to you! I’m convinced it was not a momentary lack of judgment on your part. You were a full partner.
— Judge Hudson
The judge added that he wasn’t sure Vick had fully accepted responsibility for his actions. The judge handed down 23 month prison sentence, which was significantly longer than the sentence of 12 to 18 months that were recommended by federal prosecutors but less than half of the 5 years Vick could have been sentenced to.
Say goodbye, Vick! You’re down for 23 months in a federal prison. I’m hoping the other inmates treat you the way you deserve, but if they don’t, the state of Virginia has stated they intend to file their own charges against you.
