Ex-CIA Station Chief Gets 5-Year Sentence for Sexual Assault

A former CIA station chief is being sent to prison for 5 1/2 years for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman at the mansion the U.S. government provided for him in Algeria.

WASHINGTON -- A former CIA station chief is being sent to prison for 5 1/2 years for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman at the mansion the U.S. government provided for him in Algeria.

U.S. District Judge Ellen Segal Huvelle (hoo-VELL') went nearly two years beyond what prosecutors had recommended in sentencing former spy Andrew Warren on Thursday. She said it seemed he thought he could get away with the crime because he had diplomatic immunity and his victim was a married Muslim who would be unlikely to report the crime for fear she'd become an outcast.

But the woman told U.S. Embassy officials that Warren prepared two drinks for her that made her fall in and out of consciousness and rendered her unable to stop a non-consensual sexual encounter.
