Michael Vick has been sentenced to 23 months in prison for his involvement in a dogfighting conspiracy that included gambling and killing pit bulls.

After hearing Vick apologize to the court and his family, U.S. District Judge Henry E. Hudson said Vick needs "to apologize to the millions of young people who looked up to you."

The suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback faced a maximum of five years in prison after admitting he bankrolled the "Bad Newz Kennels" dogfighting operation on property he owned in southeastern Virginia. Vick also gave his associates money to bet on the fights but said he didn't share in any winnings.
