Vick Moved to Drug Treatment Program; Early Release Possible

Michael Vick has asked for transfer to a drug treatment program in Kansas, and the Federal Bureau of Prisons has granted the request. Successful completion of the program can lead to release up to a year early.

Indications are that the request was made to deal with marijuana issues. Vick's positive marijuana test while awaiting sentencing added months to his sentence.

Vick still faces state charges for similar crimes arising out of his Surry County, Virginia dogfighting operations. If he is acquitted of those charges or receives a concurrent sentence, he could return in time for the 2009 NFL season, assuming Goodell ends his suspension.

The Bureau of Prisons Inmate Locator lists Vick as "In Transit"

As Jeremy said here from his personal experience, Vick's attorney Billy Martin is very shrewd. Many do not realize the value of attorneys when a client is found guilty and receives a relatively heavy sentence. Martin is earning his keep now, getting the best possible results and treatment for his client even after he has been incarcerated.

Please let me clarify for those who don't remember that "my experience" was watching him litigate a trial on behalf of a criminal defendant (who did end up convicted of all counts but not because of crappy lawyering by Martin), not because I've been a client of Mr. Martin's. Hell, I couldn't afford 15 minutes of his time.
