Vick Pleads Not Guilty; Trial to Start November 26th

 Against Vick

The first step for the trial that will prove if Michael Vick is guilty or not is set for November 26th.  Vick, in a Richmond, VA courtroom today plead not guilty to the charges against him.  The Falcons QB was “expressionless” according to those in the courtroom, and when asked his plea, gave a stern announcement of “not guilty.”  He did not speak to the media, but did have a prepared statement read to the media by his attorney – Billy Martin.

Vick is accused with three others of conspiracy involving competitive dogfighting, procuring and training pit bulls for fighting and conducting the enterprise across state lines.  The QB along with three others that are charged face up to six years in prison, $350,000 in fines and restitution if convicted of both charges.  Protests by PETA and other animal rights groups have been sparked by the allegations against Vick and the other three.  The scene outside the courthouse was loud once Vick was seen at five minutes to 3PM.  The crowd screamed, some booing, at the QB.

The case began April 25 when investigators conducting a drug search at the home found 66 dogs, including 55 pit bulls, and equipment typically used in dogfighting. The entire scene inside the courtroom took about 25 minutes.  Some people began showing up around the courtroom around 5AM.

Below are the comments from Vick’s attorney – Billy Martin, following the hearing:

    I think this Michael Vick is not a person, or a human. He is a “thing”. He is something with no soul and no heart. He is something with no life. I wish that God will let him suffer as much as every dog in his possession had suffered. I wish that he could starve and no one will give him food, I wish that he could ask for water and no one will give him anything to drink. I hope that in his last days he will die alone and miserable. His soul will burn in hell, and all of those who were a part of his atrocity. I hate him so much, I wish every day of his life will be pain and misery.
