Chinese human rights lawyer Wang Quanzhang was sentenced to four years and six months in prison on Monday morning, a court in northeast China said.

Wang was found  “guilty of subversion of state power,” the Tianjin No.2 Intermediate People’s Court said on its official website.

The prominent lawyer was detained in the “709 crackdown” in August 2015 which saw a wide-reaching clampdown on Chinese activists and their legal aides.
