This is the disgusting thing about our legal system and pro sports. If Vick refuses a plea agreement and is convicted on all charges, he could serve up to 20 years in prison. A rightful sentence for someone who killed dogs, funded dog fights and allegedly traveled to events.
If he accepts the plea deal and admits his guilt now, he might get a year in jail. Chances are he will not serve his full year and be legally ready to play football next season. Let’s say that the NFL manages to suspend him for NEXT year (which seems unlikely from what I’m hearing); then he’s out 2 years. Big deal. Ban him from the league the moment he says he’s guilty. Force him to play arena ball or in the CFL.
