RICHMOND, Va. (AP) -- Michael Vick left Virginia was transferred
today to a federal prison camp in Leavenworth, Kansas, to serve the
rest of his 23-month sentence on a dogfighting charge.
Yahoo! Sports reported that Vick plans to enter a drug treatment
program at Leavenworth, and a successful completion of the program
may allow him to be released after serving 12 months.
Traci Billingsley, a spokeswoman for the Federal Bureau of
Prisons, said federal prison records wouldn't immediately show if
an inmate was accepted into such a program.
Vick was accompanied by U.S. marshals when he left the Northern
Neck Regional Jail in Virginia this morning.
Messages left with Billy Martin, Vick's lead attorney, were not
immediately returned.
Vick and three co-defendants raised pit bulls and trained them
for fighting behind the property he owned in rural Virginia.
