MILWAUKEE (WTAQ) - A Milwaukee FBI agent has been honored by his colleagues for refusing to testify against a wounded veteran who was training to become an agent.

The Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association has honored Mark Crider for showing, "moral courage and personal integrity in support of a wounded warrior."  

Crider came out in support of former Army Ranger Justin Slaby. He lost a hand in a military training accident, and he later won a lawsuit against the FBI which accused the agency unfairly rejecting him.

Slaby is expected to become an agent on June 1st.

The officers' group said Crider rejected his bosses' contention that Slaby was not qualified to be an agent -- and that he testified about Slaby's qualifications even though his former Milwaukee supervisor Teresa Carlson ordered him not to.

After the matter became public, Carlson was transferred to a deputy assistant FBI director in Washington, a post she still holds.
