Vick co-defendant and dog torturer Purnell Peace: 18 months.
Vick co-defendant and dog torturer Quanis Phillips: 21 months.
Wow. Blam! Judge Henry Hudson has balls the size of footballs! He's sacking these thugs with the maximum range of sentencing guidelines and he's tackling wrongheaded Vick fans who insist on making this a race issue.
This is not a race issue. This is an animal cruelty issue. Believe me, animal rights activists wish all the white, green and yellow guys engaged in this barbaric activity would go to prison too.
Experts agree that Vick's contrite act isn't going to help him much. Even though he has checked in early to the HorrorDay Inn and has been ordered to put $928,000 into an escrow account for the doggie care of his ex-dogs, he still has to face Judge Hudson for his federal smackdown on December 10th.
Picture Vick on December 10th: He'll be standing in his American gangster suit, looking all browbeaten and hangdogged, pleading for mercy from a guy who loves and probably sleeps with his Bichon Frisé (btw, Bichons are used as bait dogs in dead game fighting).
Pete McEntergart in a hilarious article, commented on the current Vick experience right here on Fannation: "Mike Vick woke up in a cold sweat at the thought of a cellmate "getting behind center."
I know some serious Dog-loving football fans who would like to bet on Vick's "cellie" (what they call cell mates at Pelican Bay super max prison) in a dead game match.
Whoever is coaching Vick right now is the best coach Vick's ever had-and the most needed one. He/she must cost as much as his humungous doggie care bill, but boy, is it worth it to quell the vengeful feelings that are stirring in the hearts of dog lovers everywhere. I admit his public relations scheme is working on me. It's the best PR strategy I've seen in the celebrity I'm-so-sorry-I-messed-up circus.
But is Vick truly sorry? Or does he just want his football career, his cash, his mansions, endorsements and his star status back? We know he has at least 12 months to think about it.
