Lisa Nowak Pleads Guilty
Lisa Nowak, the diaper-clad diva who drove 1,000 miles from Houston, Texas to Orlando, Florida in February of 2007 in order to attack a rival for the affections of another astronaut pleaded guilty earlier today to reduced charges and ended up being sentenced to a year of probation.
Originally Nowak had been charged with Attempted Kidnapping and Burglary along with Misdemeanor Battery. Under those charges she could have faced up to life in prison.
Nowak was dismissed from the Astronaut Corps after she was arrested and has been on active duty at a Naval Base in Corpus Christi, Texas.
