Michael Vick is said to be making
a deal with federal prosecutors.
JEAN 2-SHOT JEAN 2-SHOT

It's possible the Atlanta Falcon
Quarterback will enter a guilty plea

within the next several days, rather
than go to trial.

ENG#=1 VO-NAT



VO-NAT JEAN READS


JEAN READS A federal grand jury indicted
Vick and three others last month,
charging them with running a
dog-fighting operation on property Vick
owns in eastern Virginia.

On July 26, Vick walked into the
federal courthouse in Richmond and
entered a plea of "not guilty."

The others did, too. Then the
legal landscape quickly started to
change.

Tony Taylor pled guilty July
30th, agreeing to cooperate with the
federal investigators.

Now Vick's other two
co-defendants, Purnell Peace and Quanis
Phillips, are expected to do the same
Thursday and Friday.

Normally that would simply lay
the groundwork for Vick's trial- -now

set for late November.

However, there's reason to
believe Vick himself may plead guilty

to enter a plea to the existing charges

additional charges.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution
reports "Vick's attorneys are engaged
in plea negotiations with federal
prosecutors."

A federal grand jury in Richmond
is expected to return a new indictment
against Vick Monday or Tuesday.

Roanoke-based veteran criminal
defense attorney Tony Anderson says...

OQ= The existing indictment depicts


Vick as the bankroll behind the
dog-fighting operation, naming Vick
only as a co-conspirator in the abuse
and execution of dogs.

If Vick pleads guilty even to
just that one conspiracy charge, all
the "relevant conduct" attributed to
Taylor, Peace and Phillips could be
held against Vick when it comes time
for him to be sentenced.

At the moment they each face up
to five years in prison and a fine of
up to a quarter million dollars.

*cg STANDUP Mike Stevens
mstevens@wdbj7.com Well Keith make no mistake about
it - plea agreement or trial - Michael
Vick's marketing and endorsement life
is over.


But I wouldn't be so quick to say
he's done as an NFL player.

If he does go to prison - it's
almost guaranteed that he will have
another shot at the NFL when he gets
out. The current players in the league
have all had Vick's back during this
ordeal and there are certainly teams
out there who without a doubt would be
willing to take a chance on him.



ENG#=3 VO NAT

VO NAT


*CG file NFL
:00 Of course, it's kind of tough to
play if you're in prison and the
pending plea from Vick is likely why
the NFL is still taking a wait and see
attititude on Vick.

Simply put - there is no need to
suspend a player who will be in a
federal penitentiary.

If Vick enteres a plea and gets a
prison sentence then the NFL would most
likely suspend Vick when his time is up
and he attempts to return to the league
- much like they did with former Ravens
and current Browns running back Jamal

Lew

Keith and Jean as people have
