Vick Attended PETA Class Last Month
Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick attended a day-long class on the prevention of animal cruelty last month at the Virginia office of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.
A source close to Vick said that the quarterback and PETA officials initially discussed the possibility of Vick doing a public service announcement but instead agreed that the quarterback would attend a class.
Vick is to be sentenced by a federal judge on Dec. 10 after pleading guilty to a conspiracy charge related to his admitted participation in a dogfighting operation based at a property that he owned in southeastern Virginia. Vick is facing a recommended prison sentence of 12 to 18 months but U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson can sentence him to up to five years in jail. Hudson has ordered Vick to be confined to his home from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m. daily after Vick tested positive last month for marijuana, according to court documents. Vick also has been indicated on state dogfighting charges and his arraignment is scheduled for Wednesday. He is on indefinite suspension by the NFL.
