SUSSEX, Va. (AP) - Michael Vick's trial on state dogfighting charges has been rescheduled for June 27.
Surry County Circuit Judge W. Allan Sharrett on Tuesday set a trial date suggested by Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Poindexter and Vick's lawyers. The trial originally had been set for April 2.
Trials for two of Vick's co-defendants also were postponed.
The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback is serving a 23-month prison term in Leavenworth, Kansas, after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy.
Poindexter cited logistics of getting a federal prisoner into state court as the reason for the delays.
Vick has been charged with two state felony counts, each punishable by up to five years in prison.
