Lu Jing, a Chinese national, was arrested by the Palm Beach Police Department in December for allegedly taking pictures of the resort after being asked to leave by security.

Though she was found not guilty of trespassing, she was convicted of resisting an officer during the incident.


Lu initially pleaded guilty to the charges.

Her sentencing is scheduled for Friday, according to CNN, and she could face up to a year in prison or a $1,000 fine. 

The Office of the Florida State Attorney of the 15th Judicial Circuit did not immediately respond to a request for comment from The Hill.

Another Chinese national, Yuji Zhang, was detained in March and convicted in September of trespassing and lying to federal agents after she misled property staff about her identity and entered a Mar-a-Lago club with a thumb drive containing malicious software.

Last week, two people were arrested after an SUV breached security checkpoints at the resort, prompting officers to shoot at the vehicle.
