Prosecutor Says Vick's State Trial Will Come After Release From Federal Prison

Michael Vick's trial on state dogfighting charges reportedly will not begin until after he's released from federal prison.

Prosecutor Gerald Poindexter told the Associated Press that it would be too expensive for Surry County to pay for Vick and his co-defendants to travel to Virginia for their trials.

Vick is serving a 23-month federal prison sentence in Leavenworth, Kan. The Atlanta Falcons quarterback also is on indefinite suspension by the NFL.
