Michael Taylor and his son Peter apologized in tears in a Tokyo court last month and regretted the ambush smuggled out of Japan, hiding it in a private jet drawer at Kansai Airport in late 2019.

A Tokyo court on Monday found US Army Special Forces veteran Michael Taylor guilty of fleeing to two years in prison and former Nissan Motor chairman Carlos Ghosn on charges of aiding his son Peter.

Judge Hideo Nirei explained the reason for the decision, saying, "This case allows Gon, who has been charged with a felony, to flee abroad." A year and a half has passed, but there is no claim."

The couple, who could face up to three years in prison, pleaded guilty in court last month and apologized in tears in late 2019.

Prosecutors said Taylor received $ 1.3 million for services and $ 500,000 in legal fees.

Ghosn remains a refugee in a shelter in Lebanon, where no extradition treaties have been signed with Japan.

In Japan, he is accused of cutting wages by 9.3 billion yen ($ 85 million) from Nissan's 10-year financial statements and paying dealers in the Middle East at the expense of his employer.

Former Nissan boss Greg Kelly, accused of helping Ghosn cover up his compensation, is also under investigation in Tokyo. Ghosn and Kelly deny the charges.
