CHICAGO (AP) — A woman who’s been dubbed a “serial stowaway” has been sentenced to 18 months of probation after pleading guilty to sneaking past Chicago airport security, boarding a plane and flying to London without a ticket.
Marilyn Hartman told a Cook County judge Tuesday that she apologizes to the airport and for “causing problems for them.” As part of her plea deal, she can’t go to Chicago’s O’Hare or Midway airports without a ticket. She entered the plea to a criminal trespassing charge.READ MORE: Carjacker Steals Car With Two Children Inside From South Shore Gas Station
