MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — A Minnesota woman who repeatedly failed to appear in a Michigan court for littering at a national park has agreed to pay $325 to close the case.

Ginger Postells acknowledged that she's in contempt of court for missing her last hearing in federal court in Marquette, her third no-show at the Upper Peninsula courthouse.

The Braham, Minn., woman was accused of littering at Isle Royal National Park during a visit in July 2010. In a court filing last week, she agreed to pay $225 for the littering ticket and $100 for contempt of court. U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Greeley hasn't responded.

Isle Royale is a national park in the northwest corner of Lake Superior.
