Serial Stowaway Sentenced To The Slammer

LOS ANGELES (  —  The serial stowaway arrested twice in one week was sentenced Wednesday to jail time.

Marilyn Hartman, 62, was sentenced to 177 days in county jail.

Before she was sentenced, Superior Court Judge Alan Rubin gave Hartman a tongue-lashing.

“Recently, we’ve had shootings here, somebody killed here, at LAX. There have been in the past bombing attempts, past terrorist bombing attempts,” Rubin said. “I want, and I intend, to have police resources to be used in those kinds of matters. Not this.”

Hartman’s probation was revoked after she was caught at LAX Thursday without a boarding pass.

A judge had banned her from being anywhere near the airport unless she had a ticket to fly.

Hartman had arrived in Los Angeles from San Jose three days earlier on a flight she didn’t pay for.
