Marcus Vick Given 10-Day Jail Sentence For Contempt

Wednesday February 29th, 2012

Michael Vick’s brother, Marcus, has been sentenced to a 10-day jail sentence for contempt of court, according to the Associated Press.

Vick reportedly failed to appear in court on two separate occasions for a charge of driving on a suspended license. Vick was expected to report to jail Monday but according to Associated Press he has yet to arrive.

Marcus Vick, like his brother Michael, was a standout quarterback at Virginia Tech University. Despite possessing the same incredible physical skills as his brother, Marcus was unable to stay on the field and ultimately went undrafted as a result of behavioral issues and legal troubles.
