Vick Enters Guilty Plea, Scheduled to Speak Publicly This Morning

Michael Vick entered his guilty plea to a federal conspiracy charge this morning in a Richmond courtroom.

The Atlanta Falcons quarterback is scheduled to speak to reporters in an 11:30 a.m. news conference at a Richmond hotel, according to William R. (Billy) Martin, Vick's Washington-based attorney.

Martin said outside the courthouse that Vick will read a statement and will not answer questions at his news conference.

Sentencing in Vick's dogfighting case is scheduled for Dec. 10. The recommended sentence in Vick's plea deal is 12 to 18 months, but U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson can impose more or less jail time if he pleases.
