WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A Chinese woman recently arrested at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club was charged Friday with unlawful entry of restricted buildings and making false statements.
Prosecutors filed the indictment against Yujing Zhang, 32, in federal court in South Florida.
Zhang faces a maximum sentence of five years in prison and a $250,000 fine if convicted of the false statements count. If convicted of unlawful entry, she faces a maximum sentence of a year in prison and a $1,000 fine.
Zhang was arrested March 30 after Secret Service agents said she lied to gain admission to the president's Palm Beach, Florida, resort. She was carrying two Chinese passports, four cellphones, a laptop computer, an external hard drive and a thumb drive containing malware. In her hotel room, agents found a device to detect hidden cameras and $8,000 in cash.
