Australian woman Sara Connorhas been sentenced to four years in an Indonesian jail over her involvement in the fatal bashing of an Indonesian police officer at a popular Balinese holiday spot.
David Taylor, 34, originally from Halifax, West Yorkshire, was found guilty of fatal group assault over the killing of officer Wayan Sudarsa, whose body was found on a beach in August.
DJ Mr Taylor had denied a charge of committing violence leading to death, which carries a maximum 12-year prison term under Indonesia's criminal code.
"The defendant's action was not meant to separate (them) but to help David Taylor so that the victim could not fight back".
Following the request, Connor was despondent, saying she had lost "all hope" of seeing her two young boys grow up.
During their trials, Taylor and Connor were made to re-enact their version of the events on the beach for investigators.
Taylor claims he was in "fear of his life" so acted in self-defence when he hit Mr Sudarsa with a mobile phone, the police officer's binoculars and a beer bottle.
Mr Taylor hugged his parents at the back of the court before being led out.

They handed themselves into the Australian Consulate in Denpasar on August 19 after Connor received desperate phone calls from friends in Australia, telling her that her face was all over the news and that she was wanted for murder.
Mr Purnomo said that Connor and Taylor were kissing and cuddling on the beach when Connor panicked when she realised her handbag was missing because it contained her licence and bank card, wallet and money.
The pair were not convicted of the more serious charge of murder after prosecutors recognised they had not meant to kill the officer.
Connor has always maintained her only role was in trying to break up the fight and launching herself between the two brawling men.
