Gordon Caplan, a former co-chairman of Willkie Farr & Gallagher, has asked for a sentence of no prison time after pleading guilty to conspiracy in the college admissions bribery scandal. Ahead of his Oct. 3 sentencing, Caplan has filed more than 170 pages of letters in support of his request for a light sentence, including requests from prominent attorneys and others in the legal profession.

Among the letter-writers were the dean of Fordham Law School, numerous partners at Willkie and from Kirkland & Ellis, Cravath Swaine & Moore, Goodwin Procter and other firms. Below are excerpts from some of the letters.
