Michael Vick sentenced to 23 months in jail!

Michael Vick was sentenced today in US Distict court in Richmond Virginia to 23 months in jail for his participation in dog fighting on his property in Virginia.

The judge, Henry Hudson, imposed a stronger sentence than had been requested by federal prosecutors. Vick could have been sentenced to as much as five years in jail. Reports say that they judge has pictures of his own dogs hanging on the walls in his office!

And its not over for Vick who faces charges next year from the state of Virginia. Vick lost his contract with the NFL as well as many lucrative sponsorship arrangements.

What are your thoughts on this case? Was the sentence enough? What do you think will happen when the case goes before the state of Virginia?
