HAMPTON, Va. (AP) -The Michael Vick family member whose drug arrest led to the discovery of Vick's dogfighting compound pleaded guilty Wednesday to possessing marijuana with intent to sell.
Davon Boddie, cousin of the suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback, was given a five-year suspended sentence by Hampton Circuit Judge William Andrews.
Boddie, 27, used to live in the house owned by Vick at 1915 Moonlight Road in Surry County, site of Vick's ``Bad Newz Kennels'' dogfighting operation. He now lives in Newport News.
Boddie was arrested April 20 after a police dog tracked a scent of marijuana coming from his parked car. When Boddie was patted down, police found 79 grams of marijuana on him and in his trunk, authorities said.
His arrest led to the search of the Surry County property, where authorities found dozens of pit bulls and equipment commonly used in dogfighting.
Vick has since pleaded guilty to a federal dogfighting conspiracy charge, and he faces up to five years in prison when he is sentenced Dec. 10. He also has been indicted on state dogfighting charges.
