A New York U.S. District Judge Monday rejected Martha Stewart's request for an early release from house arrest.

Stewart last month asked her sentence be cut by four months from her scheduled August release or that terms of her detention be relaxed and her electronic ankle tracker be removed, CNN/Monday reported.

Judge Miriam Goldman Cedarbaum Monday agreed with prosecutors who argued Stewart's sentence was lenient and fair, CNN/Money reported.

Stewart, 63, was sentenced to five months in prison followed by five months house arrest for her conviction of lying about a stock sale. Stewart received the lightest sentence possible under federal guidelines.

Her appeal of her conviction is still pending, with a ruling possible sometime this month.
