British Man Sentenced To Six Years Over Bali Police Officer Death
British national David Taylor talks to his family before the trial David Taylor re-enacts how he killed the Indonesian police officer Sara Connor was sentenced to four years in jail.
The 46-year-old Byron Bay woman has spent the past seven months behind bars after she was charged, alongside her boyfriend, British man David Taylor, over the death of Wayan Sudarsa.
The court had heard Ms Connor and Taylor were enjoying a night on the beach on 16 August when they became aware her handbag was missing, and separated to search for it.
Connor has denied involvement in the policeman's death, and is reported to have told her legal team she tried to seperate Taylor and Wayan as they fought.
Mr Taylor admitted to striking Mr Sudarsa with a bottle and binoculars but said he thought he was still breathing when the couple left the beach and did not know the seriousness of the local man's injuries. Connor's sentencing is due shortly.
Erwin Siregar, a lawyer for Connor, said an appeal was being considered.
Mr Taylor hugged his parents at the back of the court before being led out.

On August 17 previous year, Sudarsa's body was found on Kuta Beach covered in dozens of wounds, alongside broken beer bottles, a splintered surfboard and his walkie-talkie.
Connor and Taylor had faced three charges each - murder (unpremeditated), carrying a 15-year maximum, group violence causing death carrying 12 years and assault causing death with a seven-year maximum.
After the verdict, John Taylor, tearfully addressed the media: "We are immensely saddened and our hearts go out to to the widow of police officer Wayan Sudarsa and his family to whom we extend our deepest condolences".
He said his fatal attack on the police officer was self-defence and that at one stage during the fight with him on the beach that night he had feared for his own life as the officer pressed on this throat.
"It seems she doesn't accept the sentence, but has not yet decided whether to appeal", Siregar said.
The pair were not convicted of the more serious charge of murder after prosecutors recognised they had not meant to kill the officer.
Connor, he found, had jumped on Mr Sudarsa's shoulders, effectively pinning him down.
