A federal jury has found a Chinese woman guilty of lying to the Secret Service in order to sneak into President Trump's Palm Beach estate.

After deliberating all morning, the jury Wednesday afternoon came back with the guilty verdict against 33-year old Yujing Zhang, who represented herself at trial.

She faces up to six years in prison when she's sentenced in November.

In addition to the charge of lying to a federal agent, Zhang was convicted of unlawful entry of a restricted building. She was detained by Secret Service agents at Mar-a-Lago in March, while the president was visiting Palm Beach.

Officials say she misrepresented herself to get through a couple of security screenings. Zhang was found in possession of several cell phones, USB drives, a thumb drive believed to contain malware and a device that detects hidden cameras.
