Jailed Innocence of Muslims filmmaker Nakoula Basseley Nakoula faces 3 years in prison
Maybe he can help Iran with their nuke program and get some leniency from this administration.
The filmmaker behind the anti-Islamic video “Innocence of Muslims” that has sparked violence across the globe faces up to three years in federal prison after being arrested Thursday for alleged probation violations.
Probation officials have recommended a 24-month term for Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, prosecutors said in court. He faces a maximum of three years in prison if found to have violated his parole.
He was arrested Thursday and ordered back to jail during an usual hearing. The hearing occurred amid high security, with the public only allowed to watch through a video feed in a separate courthouse blocks away. Before his arrest Thursday, Nakoula and his family had been in hiding, and his attorney said he had received threats to his safety. More via latimes.com.
