Default vick gets 23 months

RICHMOND, Va. -- Michael Vick was sentenced to 23 months in prison Monday for his role in a dogfighting conspiracy.

Federal sentencing guidelines suggested a year to 18 months.

The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback also received three years' probation at his sentencing before U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson.

With nearly a month already served, going by Hudson's sentencing, Vick would be scheduled for release in October 2009.

thoughts?

He'll never play in the NFL again.

He's also got State of Virginia charges agaisnt him, and I doubt that the state will give time served.

i am surprised that he got that long. usually with athletes and stars they get off with a slap on the wrist. glad to see that some people in the judical system arent blinded by stars and athletes.

Federal vs state justice systems. This isn't some Colorado court when athletes are given a free pass on all kinds of crime, including rape. This was a no nonsense federal court where they don't take gambling lightly. This was done the way it would have been done if what some nobody doing the exact same thing.

Vick is going to be a big time mark in prison. He'd better find someone to watch his back is he wants to play in the NFL again.

Prosecutors initially had recommended 12 months; will be interested to read if they changed that recommendation after Vick's post-plea conduct. My bet is Judge Hudson found Vick to be the ringleader/bankroller and was not pleased by the post-plea pot smoking.

No stories I have seen yet on what went down in court today.

He cannot return to the NFL until 2010 - he may play pro ball, but it will be in Canada or for some NFL wannabe competitor.

Good riddance

He'll play in the NFL. The Ravens are already clearing cap room for him.

If Vinnie Testeverde is still playing in the NFL, then Vick will end up playing again. The one thing I can say for sure is that he'll never wear a Steelers uniform.
