The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback could have been sentenced up to five years by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson. Vick, who turned himself in Nov. 19 in anticipation of his sentence, was wearing a black-and-white striped prison suit.Federal guidelines on good behavior could save Vick about 3 months in jail, which means a release in summer 2009 at the earliest.
After Vick apologized to the court and his family, Hudson told him: “You need to apologize to the millions of young people who looked up to you.”
“Yes, sir,” Vick answered.
Vick acknowledged he used “poor judgment” and added, “I’m willing to deal with the consequences and accept responsibility for my actions.” SOURCE: MSNBC
