Astronaut Sex Scandal: Guilty!

Ex-Astronaut Lisa Nowak, who attacked her rival in a love triangle, pleaded guilty today to burglary of a car and misdemeanor battery, avoiding kidnapping and attempted murder charges. Under a plea bargain agreement, she was sentenced to two days in jail (already served) and one year of probation, which she will undoubtedly serve in the company of a literary agent and ghost writer.

On February 5, 2007, Captain Nowak was arrested at the Orlando airport after driving 900 miles non-stop from Houston and pepper-spraying her romantic rival, Air Force Captain Colleen Shipman. Ms. Shipman was the current lover of Ms. Nowak’s old flame, Astronaut William Oefelein.

Nowak’s car contained latex gloves, a wig, a BB pistol and ammunition, pepper spray, a 2-pound drilling hammer, rubber tubing, plastic garbage bags, an 8-inch folding knife, and (apparently) the Astronaut’s friend, Maximum Absorbency Garments (adult diapers). Ms. Nowak denied wearing the diapers on her non-stop 24-hour drive. She also pleaded insanity before taking the plea bargain.
