A woman managed to sneak aboard a British Airways flight from Chicago to London despite having no ticket or passport.
And in 2016, an IL judge sentenced her to two years of probation and six months at a mental-health facility, where she had already been staying, after she was arrested again at Chicago O'Hare International Airport.
The TSA likewise would not elaborate on how Hartman managed to evade federal security, saying only in a statement, "This matter is subject to an ongoing investigation and TSA is working closely with our law enforcement and airline partners in that effort". Police said she also did not have a passport.
She was charged Saturday with felony theft and misdemeanor criminal trespass to land and issued a $25,000 personal recognizance bond with mandatory electronic monitoring.
Hartman had reportedly wandered around Chicago O'Hare for two days without being questioned. She then slept overnight at the airport after which she boarded a flight to London without a ticket the next day, prosecutors said Saturday.
This is at least the tenth time that Hartmann has tried her luck.
After sleeping overnight in O'Hare's global terminal, she somehow made it past British Airways staff and a Customs and Border Patrol office.

Marilyn Jean Hartman on Tuesday, Aug. 26, 2014. "During the initial investigation it was determined that the passenger was screened at the security checkpoint before boarding a flight".
But her weird and headline-grabbing behavior has confounded authorities.
"The only reason why you're not going to jail this time is because all these people that are here trying to help you still want to help you", Judge William Raines said in 2016.
In 2016, she was sentenced to six months of house arrest and placed on two years of mental health probation. "I can't figure out why that is", Raines told Hartman, according to the Chicago Tribune's account of the hearing.
According to CBS sources, CCTV cameras captured Hartman, of Hamelitz Court in Grayslake, U.S., as she wandered around the airport for two days without being confronted by security. Her movements were caught on video.
Authorities said Hartman then boarded a shuttle bus to Terminal 5, blending in with a group of travelers to avoid having to show her identification.
