Michael Vick filled his plea agreement in federal court todayÂ admitting to conspiracy in a dogfighting ring and agreeing that the enterprise included killing pit bulls and gambling. He denied making side bets on the fights, but admitted to bankrolling them.
Vick agreed to plead guilty to the first count of the original two-count indictment against him -- that he was part of a conspiracy to operate a dogfighting ring across state lines
The statement said that when theÂ dogs in Vick'sÂ kennel won, the gambling proceeds were generally shared by Vick's three co-defendants -- Tony Taylor, Purnell Peace and Quanis Phillips, but Vick did not recieve any of the winnings from the fights because he never placed side bets on the fights.
Vick's plea also states that he was involved with the other men indicted in the caseÂ in killing six to eight dogs that did not perform well in testing sessions last April. The dogs were executed by drowning or hanging. Vick agreed that the dogs died asÂ the result of theÂ collective efforts of himself and the co-defendants
Â Vick initially denied any involvement, and all four men pleaded innocent. MORE ON THIS STORY TO COME!!!!
