Here’s Vick’s plea agreement (via the AJC).
It’s 22 pages and I haven’t read it in detail but it appears Vick has agreed to cooperate with other dog-fighting investigations and even testify in court. Prosecutors recommend minimum sentence and Vick could receive “downward departure” from the sentence (I suppose if the more he cooperates the less time he serves).
I’m sure there much more to the deal. Perhaps some of you legal beagles can enlighten us.
