A Japanese court on Monday sentenced United States Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor to two years in prison and his son to one year and eight months for helping former Nissan Motor Company chairman Carlos Ghosn flee Japan, where he had faced charges of financial misconduct.
In Japan he faces charges he understated his compensation in Nissanâ€™s financial statements by 9.3bn yen ($85m) over a decade and enriched himself at his employerâ€™s expense through payments to car dealerships in the Middle East.
Greg Kelly, a former Nissan executive charged with helping Ghosn hide his compensation, is also on trial in Tokyo. Both Ghosn and Kelly deny the charges.
