The prison time for 55-year-old Carl Spicocchi was handed down Tuesday in Arlington County Circuit Court. He had pleaded guilty in December to two counts of abduction and using a firearm while committing a felony.
Spicocchi is the former head of the FBI's office in Toledo, Ohio. He was on a temporary assignment in Washington last August, when the woman was attacked in her apartment in Crystal City.
Court records say Spicocchi believed the woman was cheating on him.
The woman told authorities she was held for six hours. She was wrapped in tape, dragged by her hair, beaten and threatened with a knife and a gun before she managed to escape.
