Libby: I Don't Deserve 3 Years in Prison

SHARE

Lewis "Scooter" Libby told a judge today that he does not deserve the roughly three years behind bars that special prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald recommended he receive last week for perjury and obstruction.

Meanwhile, the judge in the case, Reggie B. Walton, decided to release the 150-some letters he received, many of which are expected to express support for the former aide to Vice President Dick Cheney.

Last week, Fitzgerald wrote in his sentencing memo that Libby showed no remorse, and recommended that Walton peg Libby with 30 to 37 months of jail time. That memorandum is available here on USNews.com.
