Libby wants probation (and maybe community service).

"Libby wants probation (and maybe community service)."

Lawyers for Scooter Libby urged a federal judge today to “spare him from prison on his felony conviction for his role in a C.I.A. leak investigation,” recommending Libby “be given probation, possibly with community service, when he is sentenced on Tuesday.” Their court filing describing Libby begins, “Distinguished public servant. Generous mentor. Selfless friend.” Emptywheel has additional analysis.

UPDATE: Jeralyn has more.
