Chang is reportedly a certified professional mountain guide and earned a living taking groups trekking through the nation’s mountain ranges. Chang appealed the decision, which resulted in yesterday’s High Court ruling of a three-year suspended sentence.

Investigations have also not found any evidence of sexual deviancy as some media outlets and netizens had insinuated, they said.
