Serial Stowaway, Marilyn Hartman, Due Back In Court Next Month

CHICAGO (CBS)-- Marilyn Hartman, the "serial stowaway," was back in court Monday, nearly a week after her latest arrest at O'Hare International Airport.

Hartman, 69, was ordered held without bail in two of her cases and is being held on $100,000 bond on her new escape charge after being arrested at O'Hare last Tuesday.

Hartman was on electronic monitoring at the time, and court orders prohibited her from going to O'Hare or Midway airports without a boarding pass.

At her latest hearing on Monday, a judge ordered a pre-sentence investigation report to look into Hartman's background and mental health to help the judge determine what happens to her next.

Hartman is due back in court on April 9 and remains held without bond.

She was arrested at O'Hare Airport last Tuesday, less than 36 hours after CBS 2 aired her exclusive interview with CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards.

Hartman told him she was done causing problems at airports, but her lawyer says our interview triggered her to act out again, saying she was "triggered by the interview."

"She was very upset by watching the interview and did not agree to the interview being broadcast," her lawyer said. "She was harassed by the reporter wanting her to give more interviews."

However, Hartman not only consented to being recorded for an interview with Edwards, she thanked him for reaching out to her.

Hartman still faces felony charges for trying to sneak onto planes.
