LOS ANGELES (AP) - A stowaway who was ordered to stay away from Los Angeles International Airport has been sentenced to jail after admitting she violated her probation by going back to the airport.

Los Angeles City Attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan says 62-year-old Marilyn Jean Hartman was sentenced Wednesday to 177 days in jail for returning to LAX last Thursday and wandering through terminals without a ticket.

A day before she was caught at the airport, Hartman had pleaded no contest to taking a flight from San Jose to Los Angeles without a ticket. A judge had placed Hartman on a 2-year-long probation and ordered her to stay away from LAX unless she had a paid ticket.
