    Michael Vick's lawyer said Monday the NFL star will plead guilty to federal dogfighting conspiracy charges, putting the Atlanta Falcons quarterback's career in jeopardy and leaving him subject to a possible prison term.
    The offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, although federal sentencing guidelines most likely would call for less.

    "Mr. Vick has agreed to enter a plea of guilty to those charges and to accept full responsibility for his actions and the mistakes he has made. Michael wishes to apologize again to everyone who has been hurt by this matter."
    Billy Martin,
    -Michael Vick's lead defense attorney

    Not surprising that he finally caved in. It seemed like the writing was on the wall for him once those last two guys flipped last week.

    The seller announced that they were donating the proceeds to a dog charity before the auction though. So it's more of a donation.

    To counter butt heads like Vick who abuse animals, there are some nice guys in sports who take pity on them. Take all star Chase Utley 2nd baseman the Philadelphia Phillies for example:

    Chase and Jen Utley have joined the effort to save a badly abused puppy. Etana, which means strong spirit, was severely beaten and burned by a group of teens in Western Philadelphia, before they lit her on fire. Jen, who regularly helps out at the Pennsylvania Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals, saw the puppy today at one of her visits and immediately pledged to help. The treatment for the dog would be too large a strain on the PSPCA’s budget, so she and Chase are covering all of the Etana’s medical expenses. Etana, a small boxer, will need months of intensive treatment, and may lose a leg. Despite all she’s been through, she still wags her tail every time someone comes to see her.
