Vick starts serving time!

Michael Vick surrendered to US Marshals today to wait out his sentencing from jail. We should all be learning his fate December 10, when his sentencing will take place.
The order filed in U.S. District Court said: "Vick has indicated his desire to voluntarily enter custody prior to his sentencing hearing. It appearing appropriate to do so, the U.S. Marshal is ordered to take custody of the Defendant immediately upon his surrender."
Vick has been charged with two state felony counts — beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting.

Each felony can earn up to five years in prison.

This female pit pull was seized from Michael Vick's property, along with 51 others. A quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons, Vick received a federal indictment on dogfighting charges. (The Humane Society of the United States)

Here's hoping some justice can finally be done for the poor dogs whose lives he ruined.
