Michael Vick issued a public apology for "using bad judgement and making bad decisions" shortly after today's appearance in a federal court room. That's where the suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback pleaded guilty to a dogfighting charge. He faces anywhere from one to five years in prison when sentenced on December 10th.

In a written plea filed last week, Vick admitted helping kill six to eight pit bulls and supplying money for gambling on the fights.

The plea agreement calls for a sentencing range of 12 to 18 months. But judge Henry Hudson emphasized during today's 15-minute hearing that he is not bound by any recommendation or federal guidelines.

The NFL suspended Vick indefinitely and without pay Friday after his plea agreement was filed.
