A San Francisco woman accused of trying to get past security at San Francisco International Airport – and succeeding once – so she could “go somewhere warm” has plead not guilty to six misdemeanor charges related to trespassing, false identification and burglary.
Marilyn Jean Hartman, 62, is accused of attempting to sneak through security at the airport three times between Feb. 15 and Feb. 20 in order to fly to Hawaii, according to the San Mateo County District Attorney's Office.
On her first attempt, prosecutors said, she reportedly made it through and onto an airplane and was caught only when the actual ticket holder arrived.
On two other occasions, she was apprehended by security and did not make it through, prosecutors said. On the third attempt, she tried to use a discarded boarding pass to get through security.
After her first two attempts, security interviewed her and told her just to leave the airport. On her third attempt, she was arrested. Hartman said at the time that she has cancer and only “wanted to go somewhere warm,” prosecutors said.
Hartman plead not guilty Friday and a public defender was appointed to represent her. She will be back in court March 17 and is currently in custody on $5,000 bail.
