Football star Vick says he is sorry
RICHMOND, Virginia (Reuters) - U.S. football star Michael Vick publicly apologized on Monday after pleading guilty in a dogfighting case that will almost certainly land him in jail and prompted his suspension from the sport.
"I want to apologize for all the things I've done and all the things I've allowed to happen," Vick, 27, told reporters after entering his plea. "Dogfighting is a terrible thing and I do reject it."
"I take full responsibility for my actions," he said. "What I did was very immature, I need to grow up."
