The man behind an anti-Muslim film that was blamed for violence and protests in several Muslim countries in September was sentenced on Wednesday to one year in prison for violating the terms of his parole. From The New York Times:
The man, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who is also known as Mark Basseley Youssef, a name he legally adopted in 2002, appeared in Federal District Court here and pleaded guilty to four charges of violating a probation sentence imposed on him in 2010 after a bank fraud conviction. Each of his guilty pleas, worked out with prosecutors in advance, was related to his maintenance of the two identities.
In exchange for the guilty pleas, the government agreed to drop four additional charges tied to Nakoula's role on the film "Innocence of Muslims."
