Former Virginia Tech quarterback Marcus Vick was found in contempt of court Tuesday for not providing documentation about his financial status.

According to the Roanoke Times judge found Vick in contempt for failing to produce financial records

Vick, 28, who is now living in the Atlanta area, signed a promissory note for $40,000 in September 2008 pertaining to a civil matter. Kris Olin, the attorney for plaintiff Barbara Ferguson, said that because Vick owes that judgment, the plaintiff has a right to see Vick’s financial statements.

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.

Judge Brett Geisler, a Carroll County Circuit Court judge brought in to preside over the hearing, found Vick in contempt of court and ruled that he has 30 days to provide the remaining documents.

Geisler said that Vick will not be forced to provide tax returns because he has not filed taxes in the past five years, but Geisler did order Vick to produce any and all bank statements for the past 12 months and pay stubs for any employment he has held in the past five years.
