SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO -- A 62-year-old woman accused of trying to sneak onto a plane to Hawaii three times was again arrested at San Francisco International Airport Tuesday morning for ignoring the terms of a restraining order.

Marilyn Jean Hartman was arrested for trespassing and violating a court order after she was spotted about 9 a.m. hanging out at an SFO food court, San Mateo County Sheriff's spokeswoman Rebecca Rosenblatt said. While the woman did not go through security, the terms of her probation from three unauthorized attempts to board Hawaii-bound flights prohibit her from being at the airport without a legitimate ticket to fly.

According to Rosenblatt, the woman had neither a boarding pass in her possession nor the money to purchase one. She was taken to county jail, where she was booked Tuesday morning.

Prosecutors said Hartman tried three times to get on planes to Hawaii, on Feb. 15, 18 and 20. The first time, she made it through security and onto an airplane without a ticket, and was only caught when the ticketed passenger arrived and found her sitting in the seat.

She was not able to make it through security on her next two tries, and was arrested Feb. 20 after trying to get on the flight with a discarded boarding pass, authorities said. She pleaded no contest to two counts of misdemeanor commercial burglary and was put on 18 months probation.

While the reasons for the woman's continuous attempts to get to Hawaii remain unknown, she told authorities it was because she has cancer and wanted to go someplace warm. Authorities have not yet said whether her medical claims check out.
