Here is Michael Vick’s statement from July 26th, read by lawyer Billy Martin:
“Today in court I pleaded innocent to the allegations made against me. I take these charges very seriously and I look forward to clearing my good name. I respectfully ask all of you to hold your judgment until all of the facts are shown. Above all, I would like to say to my mom I am sorry for what she has had to go through in this most trying of times. It’s caused pain for my family and I apologize to my family. I also want to apologize to my Falcon teammates for not being with them.”
Martin went on to say this that day:
“We are conducting our own investigation, looking forward to standing before the world to say that Michael Vick is innocent,” Martin told reporters moments after his client left the courthouse at 4:02p..
Yesterday vick’s lawyer Billy Martin said this:
“From the beginning, Mr. Vick has accepted responsibility for his actions, and his self-surrender further demonstrates that acceptance,” attorney Billy Martin said in a 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.”
I know it’s a lawyers job to say whatever benefits his client, but it’s not my job to believe him.
