State Trial For Michael Vick Delayed

Michael Vick’s Virginia trial on state charges connected to dogfighting is being postponed.  The trial was to start April 2nd, but the Surry County, Virginia, prosecutor’s office said it will be postponed to a later date that has not been set.  The state indictment accuses the suspended NFL quarterback with one count of torturing and killing dogs and one count of promoting dogfighting.  Each charge carries a maximum five-year prison sentence.  Vick is already serving a 23-month federal prison term after pleading guilty to federal dogfighting charges last fall.
