Sept. 27 courtroom sketch of Mark Basseley Youssef.
Innocence of Muslims creator Mark Basseley Youssef — whose aliases include Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, Sam Bacile, Kritbag Difrat and P.J. Tobacco — has been found guilty of violating probation from a 2010 bank fraud conviction. On Wednesday, the California Coptic Christian was sentenced one year in prison.
Youssef’s probation violation was related to his use of computers and the Internet — not the film itself.
The Innocence of Muslims movie trailer on YouTube sparked weeks of anti-U.S. riots throughout the Middle East and South Asia in September.
