LOS ANGELES (AP) — A woman who was ordered to stay away from Los Angeles International Airport after she flew from San Jose without a ticket is set to appear in court for violating the terms of her probation.

Los Angeles city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan says a probation violation motion was filed Monday morning against Marilyn Hartman and a hearing is scheduled for the afternoon.

Hartman was arrested Thursday after airport police spotted her wandering through the terminals. Just one day earlier, the 62-year-old was put on two years’ probation after she pleaded no contest to willfully and unlawfully entering the city as a stowaway. She was barred from being at the airport without a ticket.

Hartman has been jailed with bail set at $10,000. Calls and an email to her attorney, Elsie Wanton, were not immediately returned.
