The 34-year-old Hamptonian has reportedly agreed to fully cooperate with the investigation of the dogfighting ring in which Vick and his two co-defendants allegedly participated. He will be sentenced December 14.
At Vick's arraignment on Thursday, Judge Henry Hudson set a trial date for November 26. Tensions ran as thick as the Richmond humidity that day, as hundreds of protesters camped out across the street from the Lewis F. Powell Jr. Courthouse for hours to express their outrage at Vick in person. The Hook was there to capture the spectacle and has made it available in a slide show.
