Suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick surrendered to authorities yesterday after deciding to begin his federal prison sentence three weeks earlier than his scheduled sentencing, according to a court document.

Vick surrendered to U.S. marshals and was being held at a regional jail. He is scheduled to be sentenced Dec. 10 by U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson after pleading guilty to a conspiracy charge related to his participation in a dogfighting operation based at a property he owned in southeastern Virginia.

According to an order signed yesterday by Hudson, Vick “has indicated his desire to voluntarily enter custody prior to his sentencing hearing.”

The order said it appeared “appropriate to do so” and Vick “is remanded to custody based solely on his desire to begin his period of incarceration prior to his sentencing hearing and not because of a violation of any condition of his bond.”

Vick is facing a recommended jail sentence of 12 to 18 months, although Hudson can sentence Vick to up to five years in prison if he chooses.

“From the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, and his self surrender further demonstrates that acceptance,” Vick’s Washington based attorney, William R. {Billy} Martin, said in a written statement. “Michael wants to again apologize to everyone who has been hurt in this matter and he thanks all of the people who have offered him and his family prayers and support during this time.”

Vick also is facing state dogfighting charges and was suspended indefinitely by the NFL after entering his guilty plea in his federal case.
