Feds: FBI agent killer's sentence shouldn't be cut
PITTSBURGH (AP) —
Federal prosecutors said a western Pennsylvania woman who fatally shot an FBI agent during a drug raid at her home nearly five years ago doesn't deserve a reduction of her 15-year, 10-month prison sentence.
Christina Korbe, 44, asked for the reduction in a motion last month, citing her newfound remorse and "exceptional" efforts to turn her life around.
But in a response filed Friday, prosecutors said Korbe's rehabilitation -- which includes getting her GED diploma and completing a drug abuse education course -- is commendable, but hardly "exceptional."
Korbe is serving her sentence at the Federal Medical Center-Carswell, near Fort Worth, Texas.
She shot FBI Special Agent Samuel Hicks when he led the pre-dawn drug raid at her Indiana Township home on Nov. 19, 2008, saying she was startled and concerned for her children.
