Vick Offered Plea Agreement; Could Plead Guilty


August 14, 2007

Two of Michael Vick's co-defendants are expected to plead guilty on Thursday. A plea deal for Vick has been put on the table until Friday and there are reports that the quarteback could enter a guilty plea.

The Atlanta Journal Constitution is reporting that Vick's attorneys are working on plea negotiations with federal prosecutors. The paper says that Vick's attorneys could reach an agreement before new charges are handed down.

Without a plea deal Vick could face more charges in a superseding indictment. New developments that legal experts say are damaging to Vick.

"He will probably be indicted for racketeering charges. He knows that he has three co-defendants that are testifying against him. The insiders have flipped. They know the ins and outs of and Michael Vick is the one with money. so, they are going to put it on him" said Atlanta attorney Steve Sadow.

A former Vick co-defendant pleaded guilty last month to participating in an interstate dogfighting conspiracy as part of a plea deal.
