Australian woman Sara Connor has been found guilty and sentenced to four years in jail over the fatal assault of a Bali police officer on Kuta beach in August, 2016.
Three judges in a Denpasar court on Monday deemed Connor to have been in a mentally fit state on the night of an incident including herself, her British DJ boyfriend, David Taylor and 53-year-old Balinese police officer Wayan Sudarsa.
She was then handed the four-year sentence for a charge of group violence causing death. It remains unclear if Connor will appeal the decision.

Connor, a Byron Bay businesswoman and mother-of-two, was facing the possibility of 8 years in jail before only being sentenced to the four year term.
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.
She is reported to have said that when she saw Taylor punching the officer, she tried to separate them before the policeman bit her twice.
Earlier, Taylor was also found guilty of group violence causing death and sentenced to six years in jail before being taken to a holding cell.
He was also originally facing a possible 8 years in jail, although the three judges in court deemed he had not committed murder.

The judgement comes after Taylor's lawyer Haposan Sihombing said his client hit 53-year-old police officer Sudarsa in the head twice with a pair of binoculars after the two men got into a confrontation when Taylor accused him of stealing Connor's handbag, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.
