Vick will appear Tuesday in Surry County Circuit Court to plead guilty to state dogfighting charges, a necessary step to make him eligible for early release from prison into a halfway house.
The 28-year-old Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for a federal dogfighting conviction. The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is scheduled for release in July 2009.
Vick will plead guilty to two felony counts -- 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, but a plea agreement calls for him to receive a suspended sentence and a year of probation.
The house at the center of the dogfighting ring that led to the downfall of disgraced NFL star Michael Vick is back on the auction block.
A listing on Motleys Auction and Realty Group's Web site says the five-bedroom house in Smithfield is scheduled to be auctioned on Dec. 15, with bids starting at $590,000.
Last December, developer Wilbur Ray Todd Jr. rejected a $747,000 bid for the property, which he had bought for $450,000, along with an additional $50,000 in improvements.
