Agreement Reached To Reduce Restitution In Korbe Case

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The woman accused in the shooting death of an FBI agent was in court this morning for a hearing.

It was a hearing to discuss a reduction in restitution from Christina Korbe to the family of Agent Sam Hicks, and it appears that the parties have come to an agreement.

Ordered by the court, Korbe was to pay $5 million in restitution in connection with the murder of Hicks. Today in court, her counsel called for a reduction in that restitution.

“I’m not sure what I’m expecting to hear,” said George Waksmunski, Korbe’s brother-in-law.

Korbe who pleaded guilty in the November 2008 death of Agent Hicks had her supporters in the courtroom today including her brother-in-law

“I guess I expect to hear that the restitution has been reduced to some degree, but no matter how much they reduce it, Christina’s never going to be able to pay it so it’s really a moot point,” Waksmunski said.

As it would turn out, an agreement between both sides resulted in a reduction before the hearing even started.

A gag order prevented the parties from disclosing how much of a reduction is now in place. But Korbe’s family indicated it would be a significant reduction.

“Whether it’s $5 million or $2.5 million or $500,000, ain’t none of us here that could pay that kind of money from the age 50 to the rest of your life,” said Waksmunski.

The family still maintains that Korbe shot the agent in self-defense and she took a plea deal not because she wanted to, but because she had to.

“Everyone was telling her, her counsel was telling her I should say, that you ought to take this deal, you need to take this deal, your facing 130 years,” Waksmunski said. “Meanwhile, we had no fear of her getting convicted on a murder charge; she was not a drug dealer, she may have been married to one but she was not a drug dealer.”

    I don’t care what plea is made. This witch killed an FBI Agent and should NEVER be allowed to see her children! Agent Hick’s son will never get to visit him aside from a grave!

  2. Bob says:

    She was only married to one…

    She’s the one who shot people she thought were raiding for drugs. She spent the money.

    I love how women are never responsible for anythin

  3. Kevin Weissenstein says:

    Not sure what everyone else thinks & I have said this before, this Chick is H.O.T….Hot!!! They should let her out to be a dancer.

    I feel no pain for this woman or her family that defends her actions and makes excuse after excuse for her. She killed a good man with a wife and children because she choose to be married to a drug dealer. She shot the man for her lifestyle and drug money. She got what she deserves, The best thing that could happen is for her to go away, remain locked up and never heard from again.

    The perfect way for this piece of s**t could pay this family back is to take her owe life!!!!! I also agree she should NEVER see her children. Her family need to learn how to speak english!!! “aint no way”

  6. Karen says:

    I agree with what now. People committing crimes or living with those who do and condoning it have no reason to complain once they’re caught. Have some respect for yourself and own up to what you have done. Suffer the consequences and, for once, show your children that you are doing something right – paying for what you have done. Even though in a million years I will never believe you are actually getting what you deserve for what you did to the Hicks family. Stop whining and start repenting.
