RICHMOND, Va. As expected, this morning Tony Taylor, a co-defendant in the Michael Vick’s dogfighting case, pleaded guilty to 2 charges. 1) conspiracy to travel in interstate commerce in aid of unlawful activities, and 2) conspiring to sponsor a dog in an animal fighting venture. [Full Story]
[In my own words…Apparently this gives him the right to not having his sentence increased regardless of his testimony during the trial but does not assure him of no sentence at all. He has not been granted or promised no prison term at all so he had nothing to lose by pleading guilty.
Some are saying he has “flipped on Vick” or “his homies sellout” and now the NAACP gets involved. Is this really a race issue? The charges are about committing a crime and does not speak to a specific race.
I believe innocent until proven guilty but there is NO WAY this a race issue but a case about “etreme animal abuse”. flagranny2]
