FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. — A Chinese businesswoman convicted of trespassing at President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and lying to federal agents is set to be sentenced.

Prosecutors want Yujing Zhang to receive 18 months imprisonment when sentenced Monday by Judge Roy Altman. Acting as her own attorney, Zhang has not filed a proposed sentence.

The Shanghai consultant was convicted in September of trespassing at Mar-a-Lago in March and then lying to Secret Service agents who confronted her.

When she was arrested, she was carrying four cellphones, a computer and an external hard drive, leading to speculation she could be a spy, but she was never charged with espionage. Text messages presented at trial suggest she is obsessed with Pres. Trump and his family.

The president was at a golf course when Zhang arrived at Mar-a-Lago.
