RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -Michael Vick left Virginia on Monday and was transferred to a Kansas prison to serve the rest of his 23-month sentence on a federal dogfighting charge.
The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback is at the federal prison camp in Leavenworth, Kan., said Traci Billingsley, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of Prisons.
Yahoo! Sports reported that Vick plans to enter a drug treatment program at Leavenworth, and a successful completion of the program may allow him to be released after serving 12 months.
Billingsley said federal prison records wouldn't immediately show if an inmate was accepted into such a program.
Vick was accompanied by U.S. marshals when left the Northern Neck Regional Jail on Monday morning, said Maj. Ted Hull of the Warsaw, Va., jail.
Messages left with Billy Martin, Vick's lead attorney, were not immediately returned.
Vick and three co-defendants raised pit bulls and trained them for fighting behind the property he owned in rural Surry County. Several dogs that did not perform well in test fights were executed.
