Atlanta Falcons’ quarterback Michael Vick has been caught up in the turmoil of a dog-fighting case for months now. All the things that go along with dog-fighting were found at a house he owns in Virginia. This includes blood, dogs buried in the yard, a rape stand, a series of kennels, a weapon for prying dogs apart, and even the small building in back where the fights were believed to have taken place.
If convicted on all counts, Vick could serve up to a maximum of six years in prison. If convicted or not though, a suspension by the NFL is imminent and surely to come sooner then later. The NFL released a statement today regarding Vick’s situation.
â€œWe are disappointed that Michael Vick has put himself in a position where a federal grand jury has returned an indictment against him. We will continue to closely monitor developments in this case, and to cooperate with law enforcement authorities. The activities alleged are cruel, degrading and illegal. Michael Vick’s guilt has not yet been proven, and we believe that all concerned should allow the legal process to determine the facts. The matter will be reviewed under the League’s Personal Conduct Policy.â€
