Cleveland Activists Rally To Show Support For Michael Vick

CLEVELAND (AP) - A community activist group in Cleveland plans to rally at a local hotel tonight in support of Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael Vick.

Judy Martin, treasurer of Black on Black Crime, says the group stands behind Vick, even with his guilty plea this week to a federal dogfighting charge.

Vick could go to prison for one to five years, but Martin says he's a first-time offender and should get probation.

The Web site for Black on Black Crime says the group's mission is to draw attention to crime and violence to help make the Cleveland area safer and to provide positive alternatives for young people.
