Michael Vick says he is not "bad person" or "beast"
Michael Vick is begging for leniency in his dog fighting conviction. The dog killer claims, "I am not the bad person or the beast I've been made out to be" in a letter to the judge.
"I have been talked about and ridiculed on a day to day basis by people who really don't know Michael Vick the human being. They only knew the football player which is unfair," Vick said in a handwritten letter released this week.
Vick is scheduled to serve 23 months in prison for financing a dogfighting ring and helping to kill pit bulls that did not fight aggressively.
The last of Michael Vick's co-defendants was sentenced on Friday as well.
