The TV celebrity lost a legal battle that started last year when he was sued by authorities accusing him of corruption.

Wu lost money after investing in struggling electronic company, Alpha Photonitek Corporation, a couple of years ago.

He was found guilty of colluding with the former president of Lien Ming Mobile Technology, a local listed electronic company, and tunneling over 30 million New Taiwan dollars (US$990,000) from Alpha by forging deals between the two companies.

In addition to the prison sentence Wu has also been fined 3 million New Taiwan dollars (US$99,000).
