A San Francisco woman placed on probation last month after she was arrested trying to sneak on board flights to Hawaii from San Francisco International Airport three different times was arrested at the airport again Monday morning, according to the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office

Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, was arrested at a food court in the airport's International Terminal around 9 a.m. Monday on suspicion of violating a court order and trespassing, according to Deputy Rebecca Rosenblatt. 

Hartman had previously tried to get on planes bound for Hawaii on three separate occasions, on Feb. 15, 18 and 20, according to San Mateo County 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. 

Hartman pleaded no contest on Feb. 27 to two counts of misdemeanor commercial burglary and was placed on 18 months probation with eight days credit for time served. She was ordered to stay away from SFO unless she had a ticket to fly. 

It did not appear that Hartman had tried to board a plane or gain access to a security checkpoint in Monday morning's incident, Rosenblatt said. 

She did not have a boarding pass in her name or the money to purchase a ticket.

Hartman previously told authorities that she has cancer and that she had wanted to go somewhere warm. Prosecutors said last month that they did not know if that information was correct.

Right !! Give her a pass so every Tom, Dick and Harry clogs the security line trying to get a free ticket. Brilliant .....not.

The amount of time and money she has wasted in the court system has surpassed the cost of a ticket to the islands. Maybe the ticket should have been the way to go and the let the Hawaiian authorities deal with her if she wants to come back. It's truly that simple.

And law enforcement agency's still to this day refer to that as Greyhound (bus) therapy as long as it is a one way ticket. Where is her FAMILY?

She looks exactly like someone I used to work with and her name was not Marilyn Jean Hartman.
