WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. (AP) - A Florida jury has found a 56-year-old Chinese woman not guilty of trespassing at President Donald Trump’s part-time residence in Palm Beach.
But jurors on Wednesday did find Jing Lu guilty of resisting a police officer without violence during her arrest.
The incident marked the second time in 2019 that a Chinese national had been charged with illicitly entering Trump’s Florida resort.
Prosecutors said Lu purposely intruded in a “calculated" and “planned" manner.
Lu testified that she paid a Chinese guide to drop her off at various locations in South Florida and that her language barrier prevented her from understanding a security officer’s orders to leave the property.
