If Cheney and Rove aren't indicted, they should at least pay a generous chunk of Libby's fine in exchange for his taking the fall for them.

One wonders if Scooter will spend any time behind bars at all: the office pool is on when Libby gets his presidential pardon: before or after sentencing. Or maybe he's pissed off enough to cooperate with the prosecution, which would substantially reduce his sentence. . . Realistically, though, the estimates I've been hearing are substantially less than even two years -- comparisons are being drawn to the sentence given to Martha Stewart: a combo of less than a year at Club Fed, followed by home confinement, probation and a whopping fine. Wouldn't surprise me if Libby got something like that.

The jurors' reaction was interesting. One juror, a former Washington Post journalist, said: "I will say there was a tremendous amount of sympathy for Mr. Libby on the jury. It was said a number of times, 'What are we doing with this guy here? Where's Rove? Where are these other guys?' I'm not saying we didn't think Mr. Libby was guilty of the things we found him guilty of. It seemed like he was, as Mr. Wells put it, he was the fall guy."

Well, they can also soak him for up to a million bucks, so maybe he can finance part of it.

This has been a long investigation but it doesn't say how much it will have cost.

The most Libby will spend in an upscale prison will be 2 years.

Sorry it's the other way round Donuel.
Crime is just like politics, but without all those nasty lies!

Actually, he now only faces up to 25 years, as he was acquitted on one of the 5-year charges. He will actually serve a good deal less than that, as sentencing guidelines indicate.

The prosecutor said the door is still open for Libby to come clean and inform on Dick Cheney.

mrdux - sorry, I started a thread on this just after you; I must have been typing as you were pressing submit. What I said in mine was that he faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1million dollar fine. This seems a bit harsh.

The jury spent almost as long, reviewing the facts presented and applicable case lawy to reach this sentence, as it spent hearing the evidence. In the end they convicted only on the better-supported portion of the charges and let reasonable doubt lead them to acquit on the rest.

Lewis Libby faces up to 30 years in prison and a $1 million fine for lying - well, actually perjury and obstruction of justice.

Seems a bit harsh - or could the consequences have been so serious?
