Suspended NFL star Michael Vick will head back to a Kansas prison after a judge rejected an effort to keep him in Virginia to work on a new bankruptcy plan.
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Frank Santoro denied a motion Tuesday to require Vick's attendance at an April 28 status hearing. Vick's lawyers had hoped such an order would prompt federal authorities to leave him at the Western Tidewater Regional Jail until then so they could work with him on the new plan.
Vick will be returned to the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth, Kansas, until he is released to home confinement late next month.
Vick is serving a 23-month sentence for a dogfighting conspiracy. Santoro rejected his bankruptcy plan Friday.
