Letters to the court regarding Scooter Libby’s prison sentence

Letters to the court regarding Scooter Libby’s prison sentence

Three weeks ago, vice presidential aide I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby was sentenced to 30 months in prison and fined $250,000 following his conviction for obstruction of justice.

In the time leading up to Libby’s sentencing, U.S. District Court Judge Reggie Walton received scores of letters regarding the sentencing, many of which urged leniency. Just after the sentencing, the letters were made public by the court, and the Federation of American Scientists Project on Government Secrecy put the letters online here (PDF, 18 MB).
