I read that on msn this morning . They have .pdf files of the "summary of the facts" against two of his co-defendants:

(CNN) -- Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has accepted a plea deal that could send him to prison, ending a federal dogfighting prosecution that jeopardizes his pro football career, his lawyers said.

Vick will plead guilty to felony conspiracy next Monday, his defense attorneys said.

A status conference on the case is set for 3 p.m. Monday in U.S. District Court in Richmond, Virginia. The court's docket shows that Vick will appear again next Monday morning before Judge Henry E. Hudson for a plea agreement hearing.

The U.S. Attorney's office said it is not commenting. All news of the plea agreement came from the defense.

"After consulting with his family over the weekend, Michael Vick asks that I announce today that he has reached an agreement with federal prosecutors regarding the charges pending against him," lead defense attorney Billy Martin said in a statement.

"Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his action and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter," Martin's statement said.

Vick's attorneys have been negotiating with federal prosecutors over terms of the deal, which must be approved by the judge. While prosecutors can recommend a sentence, the decision ultimately rests with the judge.

The plea would help Vick avoid additional federal charges.

Federal prosecutors had offered a deal recommending an 18- to 36-month prison sentence. Vick's attorneys were trying to reduce that to less than a year, two sources told CNN earlier on Monday.

It was not immediately clear whether Vick's attorneys have heard back Monday from National Football League Commissioner Roger Goodell's office. They wanted to clarify Vick's career options before entering into any deal with federal prosecutors, the sources said.

Vick's three codefendants in the dogfighting case have accepted agreements to plead guilty in exchange for reduced sentences.

If Vick backs out of the deal, he could face additional charges in the case when the grand jury convenes in Richmond. See a timeline of the case against Vick »

The NFL is considering what, if any, sanctions they should impose on the 27-year-old suspended Atlanta Falcons player.

Court documents released last week showed that two of Vick's alleged partners said he helped kill dogs that didn't fight well, and that all three men "executed approximately eight dogs" in ways that included hanging and drowning.

The dogs were killed because they fared poorly in "testing" sessions in April at Vick's property in Virginia where the dogfighting venture was based, according to documents released following plea agreement hearings Friday for Purnell Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach, and Quanis Phillips, 28, of Atlanta. See what Vick's former co-defendants admitted »

A third man, Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton, Virginia, already had his plea deal approved.

In the court documents, Peace and Phillips said that the money behind the Bad Newz Kennels dogfighting operation came "almost exclusively" from Vick, and they told prosecutors that other accusations in the 18-page indictment are true.

Hardly

Life isn't even given to rapists or murderers like Leonard Little who is still in the league.

What he did was horrible, but it's not like he took a HUMAN life.......

The NFL should impose a lifetime ban on him. Cruelty to animals is definitely a sign of a person missing a piece of their humanity especially in this case.

He deserves:
  • Lifetime suspension from the NFL
  • 3-5 years in prison
  • An hour alone in a room with a pack of angry dogs

Also like to say he should spend a lot of money towars PETA and help out a lot during animal shelters..

I dont think he'll get a big suspension from the nfl at all, but no teams are going to take him, no way after what he did..

HSUS or the SPCA might be a better choice. PETA seeks to kill all pit bulls.

So 15 dogs > 1 human ??

Look, I'm not saying what he did wasn't horrendous, btu it could be a thousand dogs and it still doesn't equate to Leonard Little killing a Loving Wife/Mother to a family while drunk behind the wheel and then having the audacity to busted for DUI AGAIN and STILL be playing in the NFL, if that were you or I we'd STILL be behind bars.

In my opinion anyone who could do such horrific things to animals could very easily do the same or worse to humans. Research on serial killers has proven the connection.

No doubt about it that the NFL doesn't seem to take violence against women as seriously, for one example. But that is still no excuse for not taking serious action in his case. Animals can't even attempt to defend themselves. Humanity is judged by how we treat the defenseless, be they human or animal. And by how we punish those who mistreat them.
