Michael Vick Gets 23 Months

Disgraced NFL player Michael Vick was sentenced today to 23 months in the slammer for operating a dog fighting ring on his Virginia property. He pled guilty to running the operation, as well as assisting in killing dogs involved in the fights.

Two of Vick's co-defendants were sentenced last week, and Vick was given more time in prison than either of them. The same judge who sentenced Vick today, Henry Hudson, last week sentenced co-defendants Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips to 18 months and 21 months in prison.

Vick showed up to court in a black and white prison jumpsuit. He voluntarily reported to prison early, and the time he has already served is credited toward his total sentence.

In addition to the jailtime, Vick also got 3 years probation.
