RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick is back in Virginia to face
state dogfighting charges.
Hopewell Regional Jail Superintendent Darnley Hodge said Friday
that the former NFL star is being held in protective custody. Hodge
said Vick is isolated from the rest of the jail's approximately
1,200 inmates simply to avoid any disruptions. Otherwise, he said,
Vick will be treated like any other prisoner.
Hodge said Vick arrived Thursday afternoon from the federal
penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, where he's serving a 23-month
sentence for a federal dogfighting conspiracy. He's due Tuesday in
Surry County Circuit Court, where he's expected to plead guilty in
a deal with prosecutors that calls for a suspended sentence and
probation.
