Mental exam ordered for woman who stowed away on Calif. flight

LOS ANGELES - A woman who was ordered to stay away from Los Angeles International Airport after she flew from San Jose without a ticket will undergo a mental health exam.

Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says Marilyn Hartman's lawyer requested a two-day delay Monday in her client's probation hearing so the examination could be conducted.

Authorities in L.A. say Marilyn Hartman, 62, snuck aboard a San Jose-L.A. Southwest Airlines flight on Aug. 4, 2014 and took it; she was arrested at LAX

Hartman remains jailed with bail increased to $30,000.

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.

Her public defender, Larissa Cesareo, did not immediately respond to requests to comment.
