FBI AGENTS ASSOCIATION STATEMENT ON

CHRISTINA KORBE REQUEST FOR REDUCTION IN SENTENCE

 

The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA) issued the following statement on Christina Korbe’s request for a reduction in the sentence she accepted in 2008 when she plead guilty for killing FBI Special Agent Sam Hicks:

 

The FBI Agents Association (FBIAA), the professional association representing over 12,000 active and retired Special Agents, strongly opposes Christina Korbe’s request for a reduction in the sentence she accepted when she plead guilty to killing FBI Special Agent Sam Hicks, and asks that U.S. District Court Judge McVerry reject this request.

 

It is important that the tragic facts surrounding the killing of Special Agent Hicks are not forgotten.  On November 19, 2008 Christina Korbe opened fire on law enforcement officers while executing a federal search warrant associated with a drug distribution ring an arrest warrant, killing 33-year-old FBI Special Agent Sam Hick.  Agent Hicks, who had served with the FBI for 18 months and had previously served with the Baltimore, Maryland, Police Department for two years, was survived by his wife, Brooke, and two-year old son Noah.

 

Korbe’s subsequent decision to plead guilty to voluntary manslaughter allowed her to accept a sentence of 15 years in prison--a sentence that pales in comparison to the consequences of her actions. 

 

It’s also important to remember that at her sentencing Korbe blamed the FBI and the government for her actions.  As SA Hicks’ wife, Brooke, said after the sentencing: "I will be left with only words and pictures to try to convey to Noah how much his father loved him….It was the hardest thing I've ever done to sit there and listen to the person who took him [Hicks] from me and hear how she feels…she can't apologize to me in one breath and in the next blame the government."

 

Special Agents risk their lives to protect our country, and the loss of any Special Agent is devastating to families, communities, and our country.  For justice to be served, Korbe should remain in prison and serve every single day of her sentence.
