No long-distance guilty plea for Vick

vickCircuit Judge Samuel E. Campbell today denied a defense request to allow former quarterback Michael Vick to plead guilty to state dog-fighting charges by video conference.

The judge agreed with Surry County Commonwealths Attorney Gerald Poindexter that Vick should have to enter his pleas in person, according to the Daily Press.  The county will pay to transport Vick from Leavenworth, Kan., where he is serving his 23-month sentence on federal dog-fighting convictions.
