Michael Vick provides good example of what not to do while awaiting sentencing

As detailed in this AP story, Michael Vick is in the news again and not in a good way.  Here are the basics:

A federal judge placed tighter restrictions on Michael Vick on Wednesday after he 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. and ordering him to submit to random drug testing.... The home confinement will include electronic monitoring.  Vick also was ordered to submit to random drug testing.

On Tuesday, Vick was indicted on state charges related to a dogfighting ring operated on his property. He pleaded guilty to dogfighting conspiracy charges in federal court last month.  Vick was placed under pretrial release supervision by U.S. Magistrate Dennis Dohnal in July.  His restrictions included refraining from use or unlawful possession of narcotic drugs or other controlled substances.

Hudson's order on Wednesday 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.

Another tough week for anyone hoping to see Michael Vick on the football field again in the not-too-distant future.

I have a feeling that federal judges are a bit jaded when it comes to people smoking a little herb while on bail.

It's too bad there's no treatment for being an a**hole, because that's what Michael Vick really needs.

Mike Vick's behavior reminds me a lot of my former clients... except that I expect Billy Martin doesn't have to shake him down to get his fee paid.
