IN A WORD: JAIL

Yesterday, on the radio in Atlanta, Michael Vick put his "faith in the Man upstairs."

Not a moment too soon.

The day before, one of Vick's co-defendants pleaded guilty Monday to his role in a dogfighting conspiracy he says was financed almost entirely by the Atlanta Falcons quarterback.

As part of a plea agreement, Tony "T" Taylor pledged to fully cooperate with the government in its prosecution of Vick and two other men accused of running an interstate dogfighting enterprise known as "Bad Newz Kennels" on Vick's property in rural Surry County.

"The 'Bad Newz Kennels' operation and gambling monies were almost exclusively funded by Vick," a summary of facts supporting the plea agreement and signed by Taylor states.

The plea deal requires Taylor to testify against Vick and his two remaining co-defendants if called upon to do so. Taylor cannot get a stiffer sentence or face any new charges based on any new information he provides, according to terms of the agreement.
(Yeah, but we bet he can't show his face back in the Bad Newz hood...)

The really bad new(z)s for Vick, like there wasn't plenty already, is that the Fed's conviction rate in dog fighting cases runs at 95%...
