Sad story overall to see that talent go to waste, but he has no excuses. He threw away everything he had for a little "fun".

I am sure having Marcus there really helped his mom get through that. ;-7 :-B

I was just pointing out that the Federal system is MUCH more strict when it comes to the amount of time you are required to serve. ;-D


Depends on the State. In FL you have to serve 90% of your sentence

I didn't know that it varied from state to state, I heard that in his specific case though that hes required to serve 85%. ;-D

It must have been a strange feeling for Marcus being in the courtroom as a spectator. :-b

Conrad Black sentenced to 78 months in fed prison. That's 6.5 years for Lord Black.

Good riddance to Black and to Vick.

I doubt it was as much about the "fun" as it was about the money. I may be wrong though.
