A Chinese national is pleading not guilty, after he was caught allegedly taking pictures of a naval base in Key West.
Officials say the 27-year-old was arrested the day after Christmas, taking photos of buildings at the base.
He’s now facing charges of photographing and sketching defense installations and entering a military property.
That first charge alone carries up to a year in prison.
The suspect said he was just taking pictures of the sunrise.
But according to court documents, his photos proved otherwise
