So he's going to miss at least 3 seasons (including this one)... hopefully the state charges add on top and he never plays again.

He should have been given the maximum 5 year sentence. What a piece of trash to do something like that to those poor dogs.... :mad:

He should have gotten more, but I would be willing to bet someone in the NFL takes a chance on him when he gets out.

They should put him in a pit every night and let him fight. When he loses, kill him.

As disgusting as it was, I am willing to bet that after he does all his time, if it is within 3 years...there WILL be an NFL team that gives him a shot, if he stays relatively in shape.

I am actually surprised he got 23 months, I was expecting 12-15 months. One thing I haven't heard is anything about the possibilty of parole.
Has anybody heard anything about if/when he might be eligible?

It'll be closer to 5 years once the state comes down on him.

He has more charges pending there than he did in federal court.

Now don't take this the wrong way, I am no Vick supporter, In fact I think he is scum.

But isn't there a law stating you can not be tried as a criminal for the same crime twice? It doesn't quite sit right with me that the state and feds can both charge him and try him for the same crime.

Am I misunderstanding something here?

He broke both federal and state laws, hence why he can be tried in both federal and state courts.

You're thinking of double jeopardy, where someone who isn't found guilty of a crime cannot be tried again for the same crime.

I understand that, but isn't he being charged witht the exact same crimes in the state and federal courts? Seems like double jeopardy to me.
