LAWFUEL – The Law Newswire – “Scooter” Libby’s prosecutor, Patrick Fitzgerald, wrote an 18 page sentencing memo, requesting that Libby serve up to three years in prison.
The memo says: “He has shown no regret for his actions, which significantly impeded the investigation.”
While he acknowledges that Libby “worked long hours for the government under great stress, when he could have earned a more lucrative salary in the private practice of law.” Fitzgerald’s suggestion: “a term of imprisonment within the applicable range of 30 to 37 months.”
The memo (click the link below) also outlined that Libby had options, including telling the truth, declining to speak with FBI agents or taking the Fifth Amendment before the Grand Jury or challenging the lines of inquiry he believed to be improper.
“Regrettably, Mr Libby chose the one option the law prohibited: He lied.”
