Mark Basseley Youssef, the California man behind the YouTube trailer for Innocence of Muslims, was sentenced today to a year in prison, but not for sparking violent protesting worldwide. Youssef, a.k.a. Sam Bacile, admitted to four out of eight alleged probation violations stemming from 2010 bank fraud charges, including having an illegal driver's license. While the charges aren't directly related to film's aftermath, Youssef will serve time — amid what his lawyers warned was a large population of incarcerated Muslims — knowing he has a $100,000 bounty on his head.
