Michael Vick

According to reports released by The Associated Press, Michael Vick, who is currently serving a 23-month prison sentence in Leavenworth, Kansas, will be getting sprung a little early! And due to the lack of space available for him at a halfway house, the former Atlanta Falcons quarterback will be able to serve the rest of his prison sentence on house arrest.

His lawyers originally expected him to be moved into a halfway house in Newport News any day now, but instead, he will be released to his Hampton home at some point on or after May 21st, a government official said. Vick will be confined to his home and will be electronically monitored 24/7 and will only be allowed to leave home for activities approved by his probation officer. He’s set to be eligible for release this July.
