Vick’s Co-Defendant In Dog Fighting Case Writes Letter Of Apology

Purnell PeaceOne of Michael Vick’s co-defendants, Purnell Peace, wrote a letter last week that was filed in U.S. District Court in Richmond to express his remorse for his actions.

Peace wrote: “I have asked God and my family to forgive me, but I would also like to ask you, the public, and everyone else that I have affected and or offended not to just pardon me, but to try and understand I am not without sin, and I am more than just the dog slayer the world has come to know me as.”

On Friday, Peace was sentenced to 18 months in prison by U.S. District Court Judge Henry E. Hudson for his involvement in an illegal dog fighting operation.

In other Vick-related news, a source familiar with Vick’s case said that the government believes Vick has not been forthright in his debriefs with them, and they may ask to have Vick sentenced on the upward end of the sentencing guidelines.

    I don’t know Peace’s background, other than his association with Michael Vick. But I’ll venture a wild guess that his attorney wrote the statement.
