Lisa Nowak, In addition to dismissal of the NASA Lisa Nowak, a Navy review panel has recommended that former astronaut discharge of his duties in the Navy as a result of his 2007 arrest in which he drove 1000 miles to assault a rival love in an airport.
Three admirals discussed the case of Nowak Thursday at Jacksonville Naval Air Station and unanimously decided that it would be better to give the captain of 47 years of age, a download of “other than honorable” and reduce their current range commander.
The recommendation will now be reviewed by the Naval Personnel Command, and the final decision rests with the Secretary of the Navy.
If the recommendation is accepted, Nowak’s pension will be affected negatively because she has assumed the role of less range, and she will not be eligible to receive benefits under the GI Bill.
Until then, continue to serve on the staff of the Chief of Naval Air Training in Texas.
Nowak, who flew on a space shuttle mission in 2006 was sentenced to one year on probation in November after pleading guilty to third-degree felony theft and misdemeanor battery.
The charges stem from a February 2007 meeting at which Nowak drove from Houston to Orlando International Airport to confront Colleen Shipman, the woman who had started out Nowak’s love interest, former space shuttle pilot Bill Oefelein.
Surreptitiously disguised in a trenchcoat and wig, Nowak followed Shipman to the parking lot, tried to enter his car, then doused her with pepper spray.
Fortunately, Shipman was able to drive.
