Yujing Zhang, the Chinese woman detained in March for trespassing at Mar-a-Lago, found guilty of lying to federal agents and entering a restricted area.


A South Florida jury on Wednesday convicted a Chinese businesswoman of trespassing at President Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club earlier this year and lying to Secret Service agents about the intrusion.

Yujing Zhang, 33, is scheduled to be sentenced on Nov. 22. She faces up to six years in prison.

Zhang raised eyebrows by firing her public defenders and choosing to represent herself in the case, despite the recommendation of U.S. District Judge Roy Altman.

Zhang showed no reaction when the verdict was read. She then spoke calmly with federal marshals, discussing what would happen with her legal papers. She smiled at her standby public defenders and was led out of the courtroom by the marshals.

Prosecutors said Zhang fraudulently gained entry onto the restricted grounds at the Mar-a-Lago Club in March and was stopped in the main reception area by a receptionist who notified Secret Service that she was acting "weird and strange."
