It shouldn't affect the outcome of his trial for... ...facilitating dog fighting per se. He is already facing up to 5 years in prison on the federal charge(facilitating dogfighting) and 10 more depending on how the state indictment goes.However, it could mean the filing of more charges, those relating to possession and use of illegal substances and those relating to violating the conditions of his supervised pretrial release. At the very least, he could be put in jail to await trial. He is lucky that he only got tighter restrictions placed on him.I suspect most jurors already have feelings about the dog fighting charge. All the positive drug test shows is that Vick is either supremely arrogant, bone stupid, or terminally impulsive. ------------------------------------------------------RICHMOND, Va. ? A federal judge placed tighter restrictions on Michael Vick on Wednesday after the Atlanta Falcons quarterback tested positive for marijuana.Because of the result, U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson placed special conditions on Vick's release, including restricting him to his home between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. with electronic monitoring and ordering him to submit to random drug testing.The urine sample was submitted Sept. 13, according to a document by a federal probation officer that was filed in U.S. District Court on Wednesday.Vick, who has admitted bankrolling a dogfighting operation on property he owns in Surry County in his written federal plea, is scheduled for sentencing Dec. 10. He faces up to five years in prison.On Tuesday, Vick also was indicted on state charges of beating or killing or causing dogs to fight other dogs and engaging in or promoting dogfighting. Each felony is punishable by up to five years in prison.The 27-year-old former Virginia Tech star was placed under pretrial release supervision by U.S. Magistrate Dennis Dohnal in July. The restrictions included refraining from use or unlawful possession of narcotic drugs or other controlled substances.The random drug testing ordered Wednesday could include urine testing, the wearing of a sweat patch, a remote alcohol testing system or any form of prohibited substance screening or testing.Hudson's order also requires Vick to participate in inpatient or outpatient substance therapy and mental health counseling, if the pretrial services officer or supervising officer deem it appropriate. Vick must pay for the treatment. Sources: My Opinion darwin? 77 months ago Please sign in to give a compliment. Please verify your account to give a compliment. Please sign in to send a message.
