During the sodomy trial, Azizan told the court that he was sodomised up to 15 times by Anwar in luxury hotels and condominiums. A mattress was presented to court, supposedly stained with Anwar's semen, but he denied having anything to do with the mattress. Anwar was found guilty on Aug 8, , and was sentenced to nine years in prison for sodomy, to be served consecutively with an earlier six-year term for corruption. Sukma was sentenced to six years in jail.
On Sept 5, , Anwar won his final appeal against the sodomy conviction in a majority ruling and was freed. The judge said the essential part of the offence had not been proven by the prosecution as Azizan, being the only source for the date of the offence, showed inconsistency and contradiction when giving evidence and was therefore not a reliable source.
The court also overturned the conviction of Sukma. On June 29, , Anwar's political aide Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan lodged a police report claiming that he had been sodomised by Anwar at a condominium in Bukit Damansara on June 26, Anwar applied to the High Court to strike out his sodomy charge on grounds that the entire charge was "a travesty, a complete farce and has absolutely no basis". But the High Court ruled that it could not strike out the sodomy charge based solely on medical reports that there was no penetration.
The trial opened on Feb 3, In his testimony, Mohd Saiful revealed that Anwar had invited him to engage in carnal intercourse. During the trial, Anwar claimed that the integrity and impartiality of the entire prosecution team had been compromised because of an alleged affair between Mohd Saiful and a member of the prosecution team.
