Taiwanese Director Doze Niu Sentenced To 4 Years In Prison For Sexually Assaulting Staff Member
He intends to appeal against the sentence.
Two years ago, Taiwanese director Doze Niu found himself in the news after a female staff member of a movie he was working on accused him of sexually assaulting her. According to reports, Doze had assaulted her after she attended a gathering held at his house.
Doze denied any wrongdoing, claiming that he thought the other party was aware of his intentions, and that he liked her romantically. In court, the director’s lawyer asked for a suspended sentence for the 53-year-old, sharing that Doze has since compensated the staff member with a seven-figure sum to “make up for her mental and physical distress”.
