SURRY, Va. (AP) -The prosecutor in Michael Vick's state dogfighting case expects a new trial date to be set Tuesday.
Surry County Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Poindexter said Monday he was working with the suspended NFL quarterback's lawyers to determine the date. The trial originally was scheduled for April 2.
Vick is serving a 23-month prison term in Leavenworth, Kan., after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge.
``The mechanics of getting someone from federal custody is quite much,'' Poindexter said.
New trial dates also will be set for co-defendants Quanis Phillips and Purnell Peace. They are in federal prison after pleading guilty to conspiring to run an interstate dogfighting operation on property owned by Vick.
