Woman, 62, sneaks onto flight without ticket

SAN FRANCISCO, CA - A woman who made it through airport security without a boarding pass and took a Southwest Airlines flight from San Jose to Los Angeles has pleaded no contest to a misdemeanor trespassing charge.

Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, entered her plea to willfully and unlawfully entering Los Angeles as a stowaway on an aircraft, a misdemeanor, in an LA courtroom Wednesday.

City attorney's spokesman Frank Mateljan says Hartman was ordered to 24 months' probation and three days in jail, which she was credited with serving since her arrest Monday.

Hartman also was ordered to stay away from the Los Angeles airport unless she has a ticket to board a flight.

The San Francisco woman was expected to be released from jail Wednesday.
