Will Michael Vick Seek Sanctuary in a Church?

Well, Atlanta Falcons Quarterback (former?) Micheal Vick has pleaded guilty to helping run an interstate dog-fighting “enterprise”. With this move, he will in all likelihood do some time but not nearly as much as if he would have gone through trial and then been convicted on multiple federal counts. Whether or not dog-fighting should be banned or not is a separate question altogether, as it stands now, this brutal practice is against the law.
As for us, whom the Joker referred to as the “little people”, or the masses, narod, la raza,we are left to wonder how a man who signed a 10-year, $130 million contract can end up in such a predicament. How can someone who seemingly has the world at his fingertips (not to mention his boss wrapped around his little finger) can seemingly throw it away just so he can get his jollies by wagering on dogs fighting each other to the death?
I think an even better question is this: Have Michael Vick’s legal eagles advised him to seek sanctuary in a church to avoid jail time?
