Christina Korbe, an Indiana Township woman who fatally shot FBI Agent Sam Hicks in 2008, hasn't earned a break on her 15-year, 10-month sentence, U.S. District Judge Terrence F. McVerry ruled today.

There are narrow circumstances in which a court can modify a prison term, the judge wrote in a three-page opinion, and Korbe doesn't fit within them. He added that "any appeal from this Order would be plainly frivolous and not in good faith," so if Korbe challenges his ruling she won't be entitled to a waiver of court costs.

Korbe, 44, filed a motion in September claiming that her "consistent, genuine effort to change her life for the better" warranted early release. Her sentence was the result of a negotiated plea agreement.
