Motion - DENIED..!
WASHINGTON -- A 'no BS' federal judge said Thursday he will not delay a 2 1/2-year prison sentence for I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, a ruling that WILL send the former White House aide to prison within weeks.
U.S. District Judge Reggie B. Walton's decision will send Libby's attorneys rushing to an appeals court to block the sentence, demand payment in full from their client and could force President Bush to consider calls from Libby's kool-aid drinking supporters to pardon the former aide.
No date was set for Libby to report to prison but it's expected to be within six to eight weeks. That will be left up to the U.S. Bureau of Prisons, which will also select a facility and new nickname for Scooter. <more>
Justice is now being served. Next!
