Chinese Students Plead Guilty to Illegally Photographing Navy Base

Two Chinese men who had previously been arrested have pled guilty to illegally taking photographs of a U.S. Navy base in Key West, Florida, according to ABC News.

As previously reported by American Greatness, the two Chinese nationals, Yuhao Wang and Jielun Zhang, both 24 years old, were students attending the University of Michigan at the time of their arrest. They illegally drove onto the property of the Sigsbee Annex at the Naval Air Station, even after being turned away once already by security.

Having pled guilty, they now face penalties of either a $100,000 fine or up to a year in prison. Their sentencing is currently set for May 11th.
