Michael Vick to Only Serve 12 Months? January 5, 2008Posted by Marquis Chapman in Football, NFL, Sports.
Good news for Michael Vick supporters, the Altanta Falcon QB may only serve 12 of the 23 months he was given on December 10th. The following is an excerpt from yahoo.com:
“Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick could be getting out of federal prison much earlier than anticipated after applying for a prison-monitored drug rehabilitation program and evidently being moved into the program in Leavenworth, Kan.
The program could have Vick out of prison by the end of this year and perhaps back in the NFL by the 2009 season.
A source confirmed to Yahoo! Sports on Friday that Vick has applied to the program, which is run only at the federal facility at Leavenworth. An official with the Federal Bureau of Prisons said Friday that Vick was being transported to Leavenworth.
Under the program, Vick could be released after serving only 12 months of the 23-month sentence Vick was given Dec. 10 in Richmond, Va. It’s unclear exactly when Vick would be released because it’s unclear whether the 12-month term starts from when he voluntarily began serving his prison term in November or whether it starts from when he enters Leavenworth.”
