Two Remaining Vick Co-Defendants Enter Guilty Pleas

Michael Vick's two remaining co-defendants pleaded guilty today in federal court in Richmond to the dogfighting charges against them.

Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips joined fellow co-defendant Tony Taylor, who pleaded guilty last month.

Vick's attorneys have been negotiating a potential plea deal with prosecutors in which the Atlanta Falcons quarterback likely would spend about a year in jail.

Prosecutors asked Vick's lawyers for an answer today, but sources have said that deadline might be flexible. If no plea deal is completed, prosecutors probably would seek a new indictment with additional charges against Vick by the end of the month.
