Free At Last

Michael Vick has been released from Leavenworth and is headed to Virginia to serve out the last two months of his 23 month prison sentence in home confinement.

Vick will wear an electronic monitoring device at his home in Hampton, Virginia, until his time in federal custody ends in July. He’ll be permitted to leave home detention for a $10-an- hour construction job and other court-approved events.
Vick was sentenced in December 2007 after pleading guilty to conspiracy charges related to an interstate dogfighting ring.
He filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in July 2008 and agent Joel Segal said during a court appearance last month that Vick, a three-time Pro Bowl selection for the Atlanta Falcons, wants to return to the NFL in order to repay millions of dollars in debt. Vick said during his bankruptcy hearing that he made between $10 million and $12 million annually with the Falcons.
