A NASA astronaut is off the hook after her estranged wife was charged with lying.
Summer Worden had claimed that decorated astronaut Anne McClain had accessed her bank account while serving on the International Space Station. Worden had told the FTC that though there weren’t signs of any disturbance to it, the alleged crime happened on the ISS.
Worden then filed a complaint to NASA’s Office of the Inspector General that described a “highly calculated and manipulative campaign” designed to win custody of the couple’s child.
The former NASA spouse could face up to five years in prison on each count and a maximum fine of $250,000. Her first court appearance is next week.
