Nakoula, a California man convicted of bank fraud has been escorted to an interview with federal officers probing possible probation violations stemming from the making of an anti-Islam video that has triggered violent protests in the Muslim world, police said on Saturday. A Los Angeles County Sheriff's spokesman said Nakoula voluntarily left his home, accompanied by sheriff's deputies, to meet with the officers in the Cerritos Sheriff's Station. The obscure 13-minute English-language video, which was filmed in California and circulated on the Internet under several titles including "Innocence of Muslims," portrays Prophet Mohammad engaged in crude and offensive behavior.

    Mark Basseley Youssef, the producer behind the incendiary anti-Islam film, Innocence of Muslims, has been sentenced to one year in federal prison. The sentence—delivered by U.S. District Court Judge Christina Synder—came after Youssef admitted to using fake identities and obtaining a fraudulent California license. The 55-year-old has been in custody since Sept. 27, when he was arrested on eight counts of probation violations. Since his inflammatory film trailer surfaced, Youssef has been associated with several names: Sam Bacile, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula and Youssef. Allegations related to his film—which set off a chain of violence in the Middle East—were not involved in his sentencing.
