It is no wonder the Americans hate lawyers

Fitzgeralt has introduced, finally, a reason to double Scooter Libby's prison term. The Espionage Act and the Intelligence Identities Protection Act at his sentencing. The problem? All throughout the trial, he claimed there was no connection, nor was there any evidence of a connection.

It is like going to trial for shoplifting and getting sentenced for rape. Does this make sense to you?

Next week Mr. Libby will face the judge again. Once again, he will find out if he is going to be sentenced for sculpatory evidence he sought from Fitzy only to be told it was not relevent. It did not have any bearing on this case. Hmm. Read here, and make up your own mind.
