The prominent entrepreneur was sentenced to nearly 10 years in prison on August 5 after being convicted of two counts of sexual assault and two counts of assault of modesty.

Norvan Tan, 26, founder of Beef Bro F&B chain and shoe store BlackOut, was given eight more cane blows as part of the sentence.

Tan was found to have sexually assaulted his sister’s friend in the early hours of December 26, 2016. The woman, who was 19 at the time, was heavily intoxicated during the assault.

His lawyer, Amarjit Singh, said Tan will appeal the conviction.

The woman had been partying with Tan’s sister the night before the assault. He was there with two friends when they arrived at Tan’s apartment around 5:40 am.

While Tan’s sister was talking to a friend, the victim went to the bathroom and vomited.

The victim said Tan went into the bathroom and kissed her, then took her to her room and sexually assaulted her.

After this, she returned to the bathroom to vomit again, and Tan approached her and sodomized her.

CNA reported that Tan was so drunk that she collapsed twice when he tried to help her out of the bathroom, and she could not speak or even change clothes.

The judge emphasized the victim’s drunken state and said he believed it was an aggravating factor that made the victim vulnerable to assault.

The woman’s identity is blocked by a gag order to protect her.
