Edison Chen said he would abandon his showbusiness career
A computer worker has been convicted of copying and distributing 1,300 photos of Hong Kong film star Edison Chen having sex with famous women.
Sze Ho-chun, 24, is expected to be sentenced in two weeks at Kowloon City Court and remains in custody.
The pictures were copied from Mr Chen's laptop at the repair shop where Sze worked and posted on the internet.
The 27-year-old actor has admitted taking the photographs and apologised for "all the suffering".
The scandal over the photos - which showed Chen with stars including actress Cecilia Cheung, former actress Bobo Chan and pop star Gillian Chung - gripped China, where pornography is officially banned.
Sze Ho-chun was convicted on three charges of obtaining access to a computer with a view to making dishonest gain between 1 and 8 June, 2006.
Prosecutors said that, some time after those dates, he showed some of the images to two female customers before giving a CD containing all 1,300 images to one of them.
The pictures eventually surfaced on the internet in February 2008.
Speaking at the time, Canadian-born actor and hip-hop star Chen told a news conference he was "deeply saddened" and wanted to "apologise to all the people for all the suffering that has been caused".
He said he would be stepping down "indefinitely" from his showbusiness career.
Recently, the 28-year-old star, who fled to Canada after the pictures emerged, appeared at a Singapore press conference to promote his new film, The Sniper.
He appeared despite reported death threats warning him to stay out of the public eye.
According to the AFP news agency, he said: "I'm a little afraid but I have to do what needs to be done so I hope everyone will welcome me and watch my movie."
Mr Chen appeared in the Infernal Affairs trilogy, which was later made into the Hollywood film The Departed.
His other credits include The Grudge 2, with Sarah Michelle Gellar, and The Dark Knight.
