Libby Case To The Jury Today

The trial of I. "Scooter" Libby will reach the jury today with instructions being given to them this morning.  The final arguments, described in the Washington Post here, have the jury deciding if Libby deliberately told a "dumb lie" or whether he was just a hardworking employee. Perhaps a subsidiary issue that the jury may turn to will be whether this alleged lie warrants a criminal conviction. Check out Neil Lewis descriptive article in the N.Y.Times highlighting key points made by the parties in their closing arguments.

While it is often said that convictions are hard to get in white collar cases, a defense lawyer friend tells me that perjury/obstruction cases are simpler and result in more frequent convictions. Views?
