Vick to finish sentence at home, report says

Michael Vick will be allowed to serve the last two months of his sentence under home confinement because there is no room at a halfway house for him, a government official told the Associated Press.

The former NFL quarterback is serving a 23-month sentence at the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kan., after pleading guilty to bankrolling a dogfighting operation at his homeĀ inĀ Virginia’s Surry County. He also admitted to participating in the killing of several underperforming dogs.

Vick’s lawyers have said they expected him to be moved any day into a halfway house in Newport News, Va. But because of a lack of space, he will be released to his home in nearby Hampton on or after May 21, said the official, who requested anonymity.

Under the arrangement, Vick would be on electronic monitoring and would be allowed to leave home only for activities approved by his probation officer.

Vick had been scheduled to be released from prison in July.
