CHICAGO (AP) — A woman with a history of sneaking aboard airplanes has been released from jail to a Chicago nursing home on probation.

The Cook County Sheriff's Office confirms Marilyn Hartman was released from county jail Friday to Sacred Heart Home. Hartman will be monitored using a GPS system.

Chicago's WMAQ-TV reports Hartman must avoid "exclusion zones," including O'Hare and Midway international airports and Union Station.

Hartman has boarded airplanes without tickets in states including California and Illinois.

Recently, she was charged with criminal trespassing and violating her bond on previous charges when arrested July 4 while trying to get through security without a ticket at O'Hare. The incident occurred a day after her arrest at Midway, where she had a ticket but caused a disturbance.
