Charges for Michael Vick co-defendant

By Associated Press

A co-defendant in Michael Vick's dogfighting conspiracy case has been charged in Virginia with violating the terms of his probation.

Quanis Phillips has been ordered to appear before a federal judge in Richmond on March 15.

A federal probation officer says in a petition filed last week that Phillips has failed to truthfully answer questions and failed to report contact with law enforcement.

Phillips was shot in the leg after a birthday party for Vick at a nightclub last June. The probation officer says Phillips denied having contact with the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback that night. However, Vick told his probation officer that Phillips spoke with him the night of the party.

Phillips' attorneys did not immediately return a phone message Tuesday evening.

To report that he said hello to Vick at a party would only create a lot of paperwork.

He didn't have a private meeting or a meal with someone he was not supposed to. Vick's making millions and is sincere about wanting to own a dog some day, so it's to his advantage to report every detail. The other defendant can't afford to pay a lawyer to smooth over each unexpected encounter.

Anyone who wants a dog and will care for it should have one. Too many dogs are killed each day at the pound.

Vick is a highly paid thug.
Vick has killed many dogs.
allowing Vick to have a dog is like giving a pedophile a child.

But blasmaic, letting Michael Vick own a dog is giving the dog a death sentence. Vick should NEVER be allowed within 100 yards of an animal ever again. He's not sorry for what he did--only sorry he got caught. He has bluffed his way back into the Eagles team and keeps on trying to deceive the public.

ARE YOU ALL SERIOUS? WHO REALLY CARES ABOUT HIM PUTTING SOME DOGS OUT OF THERE MISERY? WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN VICK AND THE HUMAN SOCIETY? NOTHING. I WENT TO EVERY DOG SHELTER IN THE METRO AREA AND THEY ALL THREATENED TO PUT MY PRECIOUS PUPS TO DEALTH JUST BECAUSE OF THEIR BREED. AND THESE PLACES CLAIMED TO BE AVID ANIMAL LOVERS. B.S. LEAVE VICK ALONE. HE PAID HIS DEBT TO SOCIETY IF THAT'S WHAT YOU ALL WANT TO CALL IT. B.S. WHO ARE WE TO JUDGE?

Violation huh....in Virginia that can mean some more time. Why is everyone harping on Vick, he did his time, is on probation now, and honestly its no ones business. You aren't employing him, or living with him, and he hasn't asked anyone's opinion, and if he does shame on him, he know his mistakes, and he also knows what he faces if he breaks any of the stringent rules upon him.
so everyone who has a comment regarding him and dogs....get a life! this post was about a co-defendant being violated.

@CharismaSpeaks - first off, if you are trying to take your puppies to the shelter, they are not "your precious puppies." Second, the shelters are required by law to inform you that any animal left in a shelter may, and most likely will put, euthanized. Third, if you are saying it is because of the breed, they are most likely a bully breed, a breed that is over bred by ignorant money grubbing back yard breeders and slandered incorrectly by the news media, a poor breed that is constantly dumped in the pound by the same backyard breeders when they can't sell them. Fourth, if you think that the animals being humanely euthanized in the most comforting and painless way possible the same as being beaten and chained to a weight then thrown in a pool to drown - those, again, are not your "precious puppies." Stop backyard breeding and worshiping an animal abuser.
