Michael Vick Returning Home Soon

Vick will serve the remainder of his dogfighting-related sentence in home confinement.

Posted: March 7, 2009, 5 a.m. EST

Michael Vick will be home in Hampton, Va., as soon as May 21, according to his lawyers and an official with the U.S. Bureau of Prisons.

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback, who is serving a 23-month sentence at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., on charges related to running a dogfighting ring, was expected to be moved to a halfway house in Newport News, Va. first. But a U.S. Bureau of Prisons official says there’s no room, so Vick could be released to home confinement to serve the final two months of his sentence.

The official, who requested anonymity, says Vick will be on electronic monitoring and will only be allowed to leave home for certain activities approved by his parole officer.

Meanwhile, Vick’s suburban Atlanta home will be auctioned off March 10. The eight-bedroom, 20,000-square-foot mansion in Gwinnett County is part of Vick’s bankruptcy case. The minimum bid is $3.2 million.

Vick could return to the NFL as soon as next season, depending on further disciplinary action from the league.

We as people really need to take a stand on whats more important to us in this world today. We rose to the occasion against Vick fighting some dogs but when we need to take a stand on things of way more importance we don't. Just imagine what would happen if we stand up like we did against Vick for children getting rapped, beaten, killed or anything of that nature. He has served his time so leave him be. Lets finally put this aside and take a greater stand for something that really matters.

Pete Rose was banned from baseball for life and denied a place in the hall of fame. All he did was gamble. Micael Vick's crimes were worse! If the NFL takes him back the fans will boo him off the field.

I think he should be released. There were other dogfighting incidents after Vicks charge, but they were not given a sentence for their actions. Wake up people. They give more attention to dogs being killed than children. I think you all are sick. I hope he does get a chance to play again.
