ORLANDO -- Former astronaut Lisa Nowak, who lost her NASA job over a bizarre airport attack on a romantic rival, is asking a judge to seal her criminal record.

Nowak was sentenced in 2009 to a year of probation after pleading guilty to burglary charges. She had originally been charged with attempted kidnapping and burglary, which are felonies, and misdemeanor battery.

Nowak, a Navy captain, was accused of confronting Colleen Shipman in the parking lot of Orlando International Airport in February 2007 after driving from Houston. Shipman had begun dating Nowak's love interest, former space shuttle pilot Bill Oefelein.

The court motion filed earlier this month requests that her record be sealed "as it is a significant hindrance to the future economic well-being of her family."
