CHICAGO >> A judge has sentenced a woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes to six months of house arrest and placed her on two years of mental health probation.
At a hearing on Thursday, Cook County Circuit Judge William Raines ordered that 64-year-old Marilyn Hartman serve her house arrest at a mental health facility where she now lives. Under the terms of her probation, she can’t go to any airports, train stations or bus stops.
Hartman has attempted several times to board planes without a ticket and was arrested twice last summer at Chicago’s O’Hare International Airport and Midway International Airport. Last month, she was arrested at an airport bus shelter center at O’Hare and charged with a felony probation violation and misdemeanor criminal trespassing.
