Court Denies Request to Delay Libby Sentence

The federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., has refused to delay the prison sentence of former White House aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby while he appeals his conviction.

Libby was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for lying to a grand jury and FBI agents about the leak of a CIA agent's identity.

Monday's ruling means Libby will likely head to prison within weeks.
