Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, anit-Islam video producer, sentenced to year in jail

The producer of the anti-Islam film The Innocence Of Muslims has been sentenced to a year in federal prison for probation violations.

Nakoula Basseley Nakoula

Mark Basseley Youssef, aka Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, confessed in Los Angeles court on Thursday to allegations of using fake identities.

Judge Christina Snyder also ruled that Youssef must submit to four years of supervised release after he gets out of jail.

 In exchange for his guilty plea, four other violation allegations were dropped by federal authorities.

The man was arrested September 27 on eight counts of probation violations and has been in custody ever since.

The U.S. Attorney was working to prove that Youssef broke terms of his probation on a 2009 bank fraud conviction by making and uploading The Innocence Of Muslims’ 14-minute trailer onto YouTube.

The allegations related to the film were not a part of the violations that lead to today’s sentencing.
