SUSSEX, Va. (AP) -Lawyers for Michael Vick plan to ask a Virginia court to allow the fallen football star to enter a guilty plea on state dogfighting charges via two-way video conference.
Vick is currently being held at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan.
A hearing on the issue is set for Thursday in Sussex County, where Surry County Circuit Court cases are being heard while a new courthouse is being built.
Vick is serving a 23-month prison term after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy. According to court papers, he would be eligible to transfer to a halfway house for the final six months of his term if he can resolve the state dogfighting and animal cruelty charges.
