 Michael Vick is scheduled to be sentenced December 10th on a federal dogfighting conspiracy conviction, while he remains indicted on state dogfighting charges at Surry County, Virginia. Virginia Beach attorney Larry Woodward appeared briefly in front of Virginia Court on Wednesday to confirm that he will represent the Falcons quarterback on the state charges of dogfighting - two state felony counts, one for beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and the other for engaging in or promoting dogfighting. The max sentence is five years in prison on each count. According to Woodward, the defense will be based on the grounds he can't be convicted twice of the same crime. The next court date is set for November 27th.
