KEY WEST, Fla. (AP) — Two Chinese men have pleaded guilty to illegally taking photographs at a Florida Navy base.

Court records show Jielun Zhang and Yuhao Wang, both 24, pleaded guilty Tuesday in Key West federal court.

They were charged with illegally photographing a U.S. defense installation.

They could get up to a year in prison and a $100,000 fine. Sentencing is set for May 11.

Since 2018, four Chinese nationals have been caught taking pictures of portions of Key West military bases.
