Cook County Judge
William Raines on Thursday ordered Marilyn Hartman, 64, to jail
without bond a day after she left a treatment facility twice in
violation of her probation, the NBC affiliate in Chicago
“Marilyn’s having a difficult time,” her attorney Roe-Taylor
told NBC5 in Chicago. “This is a real struggle for her.”
On March 4, Hartman was ordered to spend six months in treatment
at a mental health facility and two years of probation, court
records show, after she tried to board an airport bus at O'Hare
International Airport last month.
Hartman, described by police as a habitual trespasser and
stowaway, was arrested in February at the bus shuttle center
outside a flight terminal, an airport spokesman said.
The retired legal secretary was arrested at least four times
last year at two different Chicago airports for loitering near
security checkpoints, trespassing and in one case causing a
disturbance on an airplane after boarding with a valid ticket.
Hartman has been arrested on charges of trespassing or loitering
at airports in San Jose, California, and San Francisco and at
Sky Harbor International Airport in Phoenix.
She has been sentenced to probation or jail terms on several
such misdemeanor charges.
