According to Livesteez, your boy Michael Vick, might be headed to a halfway house…on the date of Obama’s inauguration, Jan 20th:

Imprisoned NFL star Michael Vick could be moved from a federal prison in the Midwest to a Virginia halfway house by Jan. 20, one of his attorneys told a federal bankruptcy judge Tuesday. The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback is serving a 23-month prison term in Leavenworth, KS, for financing a dogfighting ring and is scheduled to be released from federal custody around July 20. Last month, Vick also pleaded guilty to a state dogfighting charge, avoiding more prison time. The case’s resolution also cleared the way for his early release from prison and possible transition into a halfway house. Vick’s camp says his long-distance absence has complicated his bankruptcy proceedings in Virginia, so they are working to get him moved to the state, said Michael Blumenthal, one of Vick’s bankruptcy attorneys. Conversely, the bankruptcy case might complicate plans for Vick’s transfer, reports The Associated Press. U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Frank Santoro ordered that paperwork must be completed to ensure Vick’s appearance at a bankruptcy hearing set for Jan. 30 in Newport News. That paperwork could take weeks to process and could delay the halfway house program, Blumenthal said. Blumenthal on Tuesday asked Santoro to postpone the hearing by a week, which would improve the chances of Vick being transferred before his required appearance in bankruptcy court. Santoro refused.

We can’t believe they are still sending him through the ringer, while other people who committed equally bad, or worse crimes are free to roam the streets and do as they please. And trying to tarnish inauguration day with this mess is just a shame. SMH
