Washington, D.C. - Last week, Teresa L. Carlson, 50, former Milwaukee FBI head was forced to retire after facing termination in October for trying to coerce FBI firearms instructor agent Mark Crider to lie. Crider testified against Carlson that she wanted him to say that Justin Slaby was not capable of being an FBI agent due to his disability. Slaby, 31, a disabled Army Ranger Veteran was discriminated by Carlson and she did not want him to be accepted as a agent for his hand disability.
Carlson was escorted out of the Washington, D.C. FBI building and served with a notice of intent to terminate in October. She decided to retire at 50 and will receive full retirement benefits as allowed in that age level with the FBI for serving at least 20 years.
Since the Carlson discrimination incident, Slaby won a federal discrimination lawsuit against the FBI and was awarded $75K. He was eligible to receive between $68K to $75K in back pay as an FBI special agent and a member of the Hostage Rescue Team. A federal judge ordered for the FBI to reinstate Slaby.
Slaby is expected to be reinstated this year as an FBI special agent, according to the FBI.
