ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - A judge in Orlando has denied a request
from former astronaut Lisa Nowak to end her probation early, but he
eased the conditions of her probation status.
Circuit Judge Marc Lubet denied the former astronaut's request
on Monday, but he changed her probation status to administrative.
Under administrative probation, an offender doesn't have to report
on a regular basis to a probation officer.
Nowak was sentenced to a year on probation last November after
pleading guilty to third-degree felony burglary and misdemeanor
battery. The former astronaut drove 1,000 miles from Houston to
Orlando in 2007 to mount a bizarre attack on romantic rival Colleen
The judge's order says Nowak will continue to have no contact
with Shipman and William Oefelein, the former astronaut who was the
object of Nowak's affections.
