Now Michael’s all alone.
Purnell Peace, 35, of Virginia Beach, has a plea hearing scheduled for Thursday in Richmond federal court at 9 a.m., while Quanis Phillips, 28, of Atlanta, has a plea hearing set for Friday at the same time. The hearings showed up Monday on U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson’s docket.
The third co-defendant, Tony Taylor, 34, of Hampton, pleaded guilty July 30 and agreed to cooperate with prosecutors in their case against Vick. Just days earlier, Taylor had joined Vick and the others in pleading not guilty.
Vick, meanwhile, plans to keep fighting the charges.
“We are very surprised about the pleas from Peace and Phillips but this will not affect us in moving forward with our case,” said Collins R. Spencer III, a spokesman for Vick’s attorneys.
I’m not a lawyer and I didn’t sleep and a Holiday Inn Express but it might be time for Mr. Vick to take whatever deal they’re offering.
