Vick Faces Prison Time, Apologizes For Actions

Michael Vick is an admitted felon, facing jail time for his role in a dogfighting ring.

Vick pleaded guilty to federal charges in a Virginia courtroom on Aug. 27.

Vowing to redeem himself, Michael Vick has apologized for his actions after formally pleading guilty to a federal dogfighting charge.

Speaking at a Richmond, Va. hotel, Vick softly and solemnly apologized to the NFL, the Atlanta Falcons and to his youngest fans.

"I want to apologize to all the young kids out there for my immature acts. What I did was very immature, so that means I need to grow up," Vick said.

Vick, who has been suspended indefinitely by the NFL without pay, can face the maximum sentence of up to five years in prison.

Prosecutors have proposed a 12-to-18-month prison term.

Vick will face sentencing on Dec. 10.
