SUSSEX, Va. (AP) -When former NFL quarterback Michael Vick pleads guilty to dogfighting charges in Virginia, he'll have to show up in person.
A judge denied a request Thursday from Vick's lawyers to let him plead guilty by videoconference from prison.
Surry County Circuit Judge Samuel Campbell says there's a lot of public interest in the case and that it would be Vick's best interest to have him enter his plea in person.
Vick is currently in the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas. He's serving a 23-month prison term after pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge. His sentencing in Virginia is set for Nov. 25.
