RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A person familiar with the release details
says suspended NFL star Michael Vick has left a Kansas prison to
begin home confinement in Virginia.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no public
announcement has been made. The person said Vick left the federal
penitentiary at Leavenworth before dawn Wednesday.
He had been serving a 23-month sentence for financing a
dogfighting ring. He will spend the last two months of the term on
electronic monitoring at his five-bedroom home in Hampton, Va.
The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is expected to be
released from federal custody July 20, but he will be on probation
for three years. He hopes to persuade NFL commissioner Roger
Goodell to reinstate him.
