A Hong Kong woman has been found guilty of abusing an Indonesian maid in a high-profile case of mistreatment.
Law Wan-tung was accused of causing grievous bodily harm, criminal intimidation and failure to pay wages.
The maid, Erwiana Sulistyaningsih, drew global attention last year when she returned to Indonesia and had to be hospitalised.
She testified in court in December that she was abused by Law for several months before she was sent home.
The case drew intense scrutiny in Hong Kong, where a significant number of families rely on domestic helpers. The city's residents employ about 300,000 maids from other parts of Asia.
The court heard Law beat Ms Erwiana with various objects including a mop and a hanger - at one point knocking her unconscious - and deprived her of proper food.
During the trial, Law had denied all the charges against her, and her defence lawyers had accused Ms Erwiana of being "opportunistic".
Photographs of Ms Erwiana in an Indonesian hospital last year caused outrage in her home country, while the case also triggered protests by migrant workers in Hong Kong.
Amnesty International in 2013 published a report alleging that maids were being abused and exploited in Hong Kong, and has called on the city's government to resolve the issue.
Ms Erwiana was named one of Time magazine's 100 most influential people last year.
