(Scroll down for video) A woman was arrested after she boarded an airplane without a ticket or boarding pass.

The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) is taking heat after the woman was able to get past security and boarded the flight.

62-year-old Marilyn Hartman, who is homeless, was able to fly on a Southwest Airlines flight from San Jose to Los Angeles, California, without anyone realizing that she should not have been on the plane.

In fact, she was not discovered until the plane landed and a flight attendant noticed the head count was off.

This is reportedly the fourth time that Hartman has made it to the airport boarding area without proper documentation, but this was the first time that she had actually gotten on a plane.

Hartman was sentenced to three days in jail and 24 months probation for trespass.
