Chinese woman accused of Mar-a-Lago trespass angers judge


  


A Chinese woman accused of trespassing at President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago club and lying to Secret Service agents is frustrating the federal judge hearing her case as she ignores his questions and leaves him bewildered with her answers.


The woman, 33-year-old Yujing Zhang, is acting as her own attorney and faces up to six years in prison if convicted at her trial set to start in two weeks. But for the second straight pretrial hearing, U.S. District Judge Roy Altman accused Zhang on Tuesday of feigning ignorance and pleaded with her to work with her public defenders, whom she fired in May without explanation. He also ruled she will be tried by a jury after she refused to respond to a prosecution suggestion that Altman decide whether she is guilty.


"I know full well that you understand what I am saying to you both in English and in Mandarin," Altman told her, alluding to the translator who whispered to her throughout the 20-minute hearing. "I know full well you are trying to play games with the court."


Prosecutors say Zhang falsely told a Secret Service agent she was there to swim and a clerk that she was there for a United Nations friendship dinner that she knew was canceled. Prosecutors say Zhang was carrying a computer, cellphones and other electronics, but isn't charged with espionage.

Altman scheduled Tuesday's hearing a week ago after prosecutors made their suggestion for a non-jury trial. Last week's hearing did not go well, with Altman growing frustrated by Zhang's lack of cooperation. This time didn't go any better.


As Zhang awaited her appearance before Altman, she sat shackled in a chair with her head down against the armrest, her eyes closed. At times, she appeared to be asleep.


When Zhang's turn came, Altman asked her if she wanted a jury trial. After a long pause, she replied through her translator, "Do you think we can reschedule this?"


When Altman said no, she replied, "I don't want to continue staying in prison," saying she felt ill.


Altman, frustrated, told her she had to make her decision -- jury trial or not?


"I don't want either," she replied.


"Sometimes we have hard choices," Altman replied. "I will make it simple for you. Do you want me to decide your case or not?"


"I don't want to continue," she replied. Altman ignored her and ruled she will have a jury trial.


But that led to the next dilemma. At most trials, defendants wear nice clothing instead of jail overalls so jurors won't be prejudiced by their appearance. Prosecutor Rolando Garcia said the Secret Service will give the clothes found in Zhang's hotel room to her former public defenders, whom Altman has standing by in case Zhang changes her mind about using them. But Garcia and public defender Robert Adler agreed it is uncertain whether Zhang would agree to wear them. Altman said that would be up to her.


Altman moved on, asking Zhang again to accept Adler and his colleagues as her public defenders. She sat silently.


"Are you just ignoring me, Ms. Zhang?" Altman asked.


After nearly a minute of silence, she said something unintelligible in English. Altman told her to speak through her translator.


"Are you saying I need a lawyer?" she asked in Mandarin.


"You need a lawyer," Altman replied, sounding somewhat exasperated.


Zhang then went back in time, answering that she doesn't want to change her clothes in the jail because it is dirty.


Altman explained why she should wear civilian clothes at trial, but then again tried to persuade her to accept her public defenders.


"If you really do desire to go home, back to China, and get out of jail ... the best way to assure that what happens is to have trained and experienced lawyers," he told her.


"No thank you," she replied in English.


Altman adjourned the hearing.

Have you ever dreamed of being paid instead of paying to find a teaching job in China?


Now, your dream comes true - we pay to help you find a high pay teaching job in China!    


Let's tell you why you should com to us for a teaching job in China.


  1. We now help recruit ESL teachers for about 2,000 schools in China (see the following screenshot). Our clients always compete fiercely for good teachers - therefore, you always get a job paying much more than you expected.


    We have a South African teacher who initially expected 14k, but finally she gets a job paying 21k plus housing after 23 interviews within two days (each online interview lasts 5-10 minutes).


    Screenshot of five groups for our clients


  2. You do not have to pay a penny to get a high pay teaching job, and moreover, we pay the qualified teachers to help them find a great job here across China! 


    For native teachers, you are automatically qualified to get paid 3,500 RMB when you are successfully employed (Please be noted that native countries recognized by China government are mainly referring to: the US, UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, South Africa and Jamaica);


    For non native teachers, you need to be qualified to get paid 1,500 RMB: 1) hold a bachelor or above degree; and 2) have at least 2-year working experience. In addition, we need to review your documents judging your accent, your experience, etc.


The whole procedure is as follows:


  1. Send us your intro video and CV (In addition, send us some teaching videos if you have);

  2. We send out your documents to our clients;

  3. We arrange interviews at the request of the schools interested who meet the candidate's expectation like desired cities, expected salary and school type.

  4. The schools will send out offers to the candidate if they are satisfied with the interview.

  5. The candidate will compare various offers and determine which offer to take.

  6. The candidate will sign the offer and send back to the school together with photocopy of passport.

  7. The school will stamp the signed offer and send back to the teacher.

  8. The school will send the teacher a checklist of required documents for applying for work visa.

  9. The teacher will arrive at the school to start teaching on the date agreed on by both the school and the teacher.

  10. We will pay the commission (3,500 and 1,500 RMB for native and  non native, respectively) to the teacher one month after the teacher starts the job because we have a warrant of one month for the school.
