Vick Voluntarily Begins His Sentence

Michael Vick made arrangements Monday with the U.S. Marshall Service to voluntarily self-surrender to begin serving his sentence before his sentencing hearing on Dec. 10, sources told ESPN.

Vick began serving his sentence Monday not because of a violation of any condition of his bond, the sources said.

Vick turned himself in so that he can begin serving his sentence earlier, meaning whatever sentence he receives on Dec. 10 potentially will end earlier.

Vick's sentencing hearing before Judge Henry Hudson will take place on Dec. 10 in Richmond, Va., which is when he will find out the extent of his sentence for charges he pleaded guilty to in his dogfighting case.
