Vick Gets 23 Months in Prison

Michael Vick was sentenced by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson to 23 months in prison.

Vick was dressed in a black-and-white striped prison suit and apologized to the his family and to the judge.

"You need to apologize also to the millions of young people who look up to you," U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson retorted.

"I am willing to deal with the consequences and accept responsibility for my actions," Vick continued, as about a dozen of his friends and family members looked on.

But Judge Hudson appeared to be unmoved. "I'm convinced it was not a momentary lack of judgment on your part. You were a full partner," he told Vick.

Can't argue with that. This was not some momentary lapse of common sense. He's still got state charges outstanding as well.
