Judge Walton orders I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby to go directly to jail pending appeals. More when stories hit the wire.
The federal judge presiding over the trial of I. Lewis “Scooter” Libby today ordered Vice President Cheney’s former chief of staff to report to prison within weeks to begin serving a 30-month sentence for lying to federal investigators about his role in disclosing a covert CIA officer’s identity to the media.
Walton will let Scooter self-report, which means that Libby won’t have to frog march if he doesn’t want to. Oh well.
