The maker of the Innocence of Muslims video that sparked violence throughout the Middle East earlier this month after it was discovered on YouTube is in jail. Judge Suzanne H. Segal agreed that Nakoula Basseley Nakoula had violated terms of his parole by engaging in a “lengthy pattern of deception” involving his association with the anti-Muslim video, including lying to his parole officer. Terms of his parole following his release from prison on a check-kiting conviction barred him from “accessing the Internet or using aliases without the permission of a probation officer.” He had used the alias Sam Bacile in making the Innocence video, and Wired magazine reported that he has used at least 13 different aliases in various scams over the years.
