Taiwanese director Doze Niu will go to jail for four years after Taiwan's Supreme Court rejected his final appeal against his conviction for sexually assaulting a female staff member.
In April 2020, the 55-year-old, who is best known for directing Taiwanese gangster film Monga, was convicted of assaulting the woman after guests left a gathering at his home.
He appealed the conviction, claiming that the woman did not reject his advances and that they had consensual sex. The High Court, however, dismissed his version of events and upheld the sentence, which he again appealed.
The latest rejection of his appeal means Doze will soon have to start serving his sentence, said the Liberty Times.
