Former Virginia Tech football player Marcus Vick was sentenced to five days in jail after being found in contempt of court on Wednesday. Judge Brett Geisler issued a warrant for Vick's arrest after the 28-year old failed to provide court-ordered financial documents.Vick, who currently lives in Atlanta, has two options: he can either turn himself in or he can wait until authorities arrive at his doorstep to bring him in to custody.Geisler originally ruled Dec. 3 that Vick had five days to provide the aforementioned documents to the plaintiff in the civil case in which he is involved. Although Vick did submit some of the requested documents, according to his lawyer Jimmy Turk, it didn't appear to be sufficient.From Roanoke.com:Kris Olin, the attorney for plaintiff Barbara Ferguson, said in December that he didn’t believe he received all of the court-ordered information.Olin eventually faxed the documents to Geisler so that the judge could decide. After Geisler received the materials, he told the attorneys that he wanted to schedule a phone conference to discuss the matter.Both Olin and Turk participated in the conference call today. Turk said the judge mentioned that he may consider suspending or altering the sentence if Vick provides the remaining requested documents, which include additional bank statements, pay stubs and correspondence with former employer Reamon Enterprises.Olin would not comment on the details of the civil suit, although in September 2008, Vick agreed in principle to settle a $6.3 million lawsuit filed by a Christiansburg teenager — listed as “Jane Doe” — who claimed psychological trauma after having a two-year sexual relationship with Vick that began in January 2004, when she was 15 and he was 19.“I think you can probably put two and two together,” Olin told The Roanoke Times in February.The plaintiff in the case has a right to access Vick's financial statements since the latter has yet to pay off the full amount that he owes in the settlement.Vick is the younger brother of NFL quarterback Michael Vick. Marcus served as the Hokies starting quarterback in 2005, but was booted out of the program in 2006 amid poor conduct.
