Michael Vick is set to be released from prison this week. He will then be on home confinement for the next two months while finishing his 23-month sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation.

Vick will be allowed to leave the home to work his $10 per hour construction job for W.M. Jordan Co.

He will also be given about five hours per week of time for other court-approved activities, which usually include religious services, doctor's appointments, and probation meetings.

Another condition of Vick's release? He will never again be able to own a dog.

Vick will wear an electronic monitoring device and will be in the house with only his fiancee and their children for the rest of the time.

Sure, it's strict, but it's better than prison. The showers will probably be a lot less scary.
