Judge wants psychiatric exam for woman with stowaway history
CHICAGO (AP) — A judge has ordered a psychiatric evaluation for a woman with a history of trying to sneak onto planes after she was arrested twice in nine days at Chicago’s two international airports.
Cook County Judge William Raines on Thursday also ordered 63-year-old Marilyn Hartman to stay away from airports.
Police say Hartman was arrested Sunday at Midway International Airport and charged with misdemeanor criminal trespassing after she loitered near a checkpoint. She pleaded guilty to the same charge after being arrested April 24 for lingering in a restricted area near a ticketing counter inside O’Hare airport’s international terminal. Court records show she was sentenced to a year of court supervision.
Hartman is being held on $7,500 bond.
Hartman has tried several times in recent years to board flights without tickets.
