Looks like that halfway house stay isn’t going to be an issue at all for Michael Vick as far as his 2009 comeback is concerned. From FOX Sports:
Vick, 28, is set to enter his plea on Nov. 25. Under the terms of his plea deal, he would receive only a suspended sentence and a year of probation. If he is able to resolve the state dogfighting and animal cruelty charges, he would be eligible to transfer to a halfway house for the final six months of his term, according to court papers.
So now we know that if Vick continues to behave and gets the suspended sentence expected from the Commonwealth of Virginia–one-year additional probation, no hard time–that he will be out of the halfway house, and not just prison, late next July as it appears that he will be able to finish his current prison term in the house. For Vick and all of those who want to see him in a Chiefs uni, this is very good news.
