Nowak Update

Ex-astronaut wants evidence tossed, Reuters

"On the witness stand on Wednesday, Nowak disputed the testimony of an Orlando police detective, who said she had given police permission to search her car through nods and mumbles of consent, and said she asked for a lawyer even though there was no evidence of that request in a transcript. "There are pieces that are missing out of this transcript," Nowak told the court."

"Nowak's lawyer claims that upon her arrest, she was held for three hours before she was interrogated and was then questioned for a further five hours. In the motion to dismiss the statements Nowak made to police, attorney Donald Lykkebak said his client was not properly informed of her constitutional rights, was deprived of sleep and was not permitted a phone call."
