CHICAGO (AP) A Grayslake woman who’s been dubbed a serial stowaway has been sentenced to 18 months of probation. Marilyn Hartman pleaded guilty on Tuesday to sneaking past O’Hare airport security, and boarding a plane to London without a ticket. As part of her plea deal, Hartman can’t go to O’Hare or Midway airports without a ticket. The 67-year-old was free on bond in January 2018 after sneaking on the London flight when she was again found wandering at O’Hare. She was also found unfit for trial at one point during criminal proceedings, and spent some time at a state mental institution.
