Vick Federal Sentence

On Monday, Michael Vick got the good news that his federal dogfighting sentence is finally over. Vick’s attorney Lawrence Woodward told The Associated Press outside Vick’s suburban Virginia home that the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback had been released from federal custody as scheduled. Vick no longer has to wear the electronic monitor he’s had while under home confinement for the last two months of his 23-month sentence.

Yahoo news reports, shortly before Woodward came out of the house, two men in a government car with a U.S. Probation Services folder on the dashboard paid a brief visit to the home. They carried a large case similar to the one that Vick’s ankle monitor was delivered in when he started home confinement. The men declined to identify themselves or speak to waiting reporters.

While on home confinement, Vick — once the NFL’s highest-paid player — worked a $10-an-hour construction job for a few weeks. He switched jobs last month, assisting in children’s health and fitness programs at the Boys and Girls Clubs.

Vick will remain on probation for three years. He also is under a three-year suspended sentence for a state dogfighting conviction.

Vick’s NFL Vick reinstatement is still up for debate. Do you think the NFL should allow Mike Vick to return to play football?
