Michael Vick indicted on two state charges

State Grand Jury has indicted quarterback Michael Vick on two new charges.

Michael Vick indicted on two state charges The Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick could be looking at more time in prison, after Surry County grand jury added two new charges on Tuesday - one count of promoting or engaging in dog fighting, and a second count of beating, killing, or causing dogs to fight. Both charges returned by the local jury are felonies, each carry up to 5 years in prison. The jury did not pursue indictment on eight animal cruelty charges, which could have added additional 40 years prison time if found guilty. The three co-defendants in the dogfighting case were also indicted on the same charges by the Surry grand jury. None of the defendants nor their lawyers were in court.

 Michael Vick already pleaded guilty in federal court to a dogfighting conspiracy charge and sentencing in the federal case is scheduled for Dec. 10. In a written plea for the federal case, Michael Vick admitted helping kill six to eight dogs at the Surry County property.
