62-Year-Old Woman Caught For Third Time Trying to Sneak Onto Hawaii-Bound Flight

Marilyn Jean Hartman tried to get on planes bound for Hawaii on Feb. 15, 18 and 20 at San Francisco International Airport, according to prosecutors.

By Bay City News Service:

 A 62-year-old San Francisco woman was placed on probation Thursday after she was arrested trying to sneak through San Francisco International Airport security to get onto a flight to Hawaii on three separate occasions, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.

 Marilyn Jean Hartman tried to get on planes bound for Hawaii on Feb. 15, 18 and 20, according to prosecutors.

 The first time she made it through security and onto an airplane, but was caught when the actual seat holder arrived. The second time she was caught at the security gate and told to leave the airport when she could not get through. The final time she was found with a discarded boarding pass and was arrested.

The previous times she had been warned and told to leave the airport. On Thursday, she pleaded no contest to two counts of misdemeanor commercial burglary, according to the district attorney's office.

 A San Mateo County court commissioner placed Hartman on 18 months' probation and gave her eight days credit for time served in county jail. She had been held in custody on $5,000 bail.

 The commissioner ordered Hartman to stay away from SFO unless she has a legitimate ticket to fly.

 Hartman had told authorities that she has cancer and that she had wanted to go somewhere warm. It is unclear if she fabricated this information, prosecutors said.

Prior to 2001, this would simply sound like a strange and whimsical news blip. But my goodness, she got passed security!!!??? WTH? She GOT ON a plane??? Would someone please explain to me what TSA's are for and what is Homeland Security exactly? I'm very disturbed by this story and potential for future security breaches.
