A person familiar with the release details says suspended NFL star Michael Vick has left a Kansas prison to begin home confinement in Virginia.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no public announcement has been made. The person said Vick left the federal
penitentiary at Leavenworth before dawn Wednesday.
He had been serving a 23-month sentence for financing a dogfighting ring. He will spend the last two months of the term on electronic monitoring at his five-bedroom home in Hampton, Va.
The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback is expected to be released from federal custody July 20, but he will be on probation for three years. He hopes to persuade NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to reinstate him.
