Woman accused of shooting boyfriend in drunken rage sentenced

MARIETTA, Ga. -- A Marietta woman convicted of shooting her boyfriend in a drunken rage was sentenced Friday to serve 8 years in prison.

According to the Cobb County District Attorney's Office, 46-year-old Cattrina Victoria Crider had been drinking at the couple's apartment on Barrett Creek Boulevard on Dec. 6, 2014. While in their bedroom Crider allegedly put the barrel of her 9mm Glock pistol at the victim's stomach and pulled the trigger as he tried to escape. 

After firing the shot, authorities said Crider did not call for help. Instead, the victim staggered outside, where a neighbor found him and called for assistance.

The victim survived, but was left with lifelong medical issues and is unable to work.

“This is no accidental shooting, and this is not self-defense,” ADA David Williamson said in a statement.. “She put her finger on the trigger, and she pulled that trigger. This case is about alcohol, aggression, and violence.”

A jury convicted Crider of aggravated assault, three counts of aggravated battery, and two firearms-possession charges last week.

On Friday, Cobb Superior Court Judge Robert D. Leonard II sentenced Crider to 25 years, with eight years to serve in prison and the rest on probation.
