Michael Vick Not Out of the Dog House Yet … to Face More Charges from State Prosecutors


More “Bad Newz” for Michael Vick as  Surry County Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald G. Poindexter stated he would be going after further indictments against Atlanta Falcons QB Michael Vick. These charges have Vick facing another 40 years.

The prosecutor in the rural county where Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick has admitted to bankrolling a dogfighting operation plans to present “a host of bills of indictment” regarding the case to a grand jury on Tuesday.

“Yes, I’m presenting matters to the grand jury that involve dogfighting at 1915 Moonlight Road,” Surry County Commonwealth’s Attorney Gerald G. Poindexter told The Associated Press in a telephone interview Monday night.

“Most of the matters that I’m presenting have already been admitted in sworn statements authored by the defendants in the federal proceedings,” Poindexter said.

He couldn’t detail the exact indictments he will pursue, but said the local investigation and the federal investigation largely focused on different crimes.

If Vick thought that the Federal charges were his only problem, he best think again. The local indictments could put an end to any chance of Vick’s misguided notions of returning to the NFL.

The local charges, and a conviction, could spell an end to any hope he has of resuming his NFL career after serving a likely federal prison term. An animal cruelty charge in Virginia is punishable by up to five years in prison, and he admitted in his written plea to helping kill six to eight pit bulls days before the first raid.

That alone could expose him to as many as 40 years in prison.

      One dog fighting-gambling ring shut down. Too many more to go. I’ll be interested in seeing what other charges are brought so we know what other crimes, other than dog fighting and animal cruelty, were being committed. As Dana’s HSUS guest mentioned, there are a host of crimes that go with this cruelty.
