Michael Vick May Face Local Charges in Dogfighting Scandal

Michael Vick may find that his troubles are only beginning. Local prosecutors may send him away for more time than federal charges over his dog fighting scandal can jail him for.

Michael Vick's legal troubles may be far from over.

While the disgraced Atlanta Falcons quarterback awaits a Dec. 10 sentencing hearing after pleading guilty to federal dogfighting charges, the prosecutor in the rural county where the enterprise was located has plans to prosecute Vick as well.

State charges that could include numerous counts of animal cruelty could wind up subjecting Vick to far more prison time than the federal case will earn him.
