Maker of the blasphemous movie identified, Will the US now try him?
New Desk (http://www.pakdestiny.com): The ‘sick man’ who made “Innocence of Muslims,” the blasphemous movie that has created unreast in the Muslim world has been identified as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula.
Earlier reports centered around – Sam Bacile – but many doubts have been cast on Bacile’s identity. Cell phones tied to Bacile and Nakoula traced to the same address by the law enforcement agencies.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, 55, told The Associated Press in an interview outside Los Angeles Wednesday that he managed logistics for the company that produced the blasphemous movie.
Nakoula ran afoul of the law in 2010, when he pleaded no contest to federal bank fraud charges after being indicted in a somewhat intricate scheme involving fake bank accounts created using stolen Social Security numbers. He was given a 21 month prison sentence and had to pay $790,000.
Nakoula Basseley Nakoula was arrested by the L.A. Country Sheriff’s Department on March 27, 1997 and charged with intent to manufacture methamphetamine. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced on Nov. 3, 1997 to one year in county jail and three years probation. The D.A.’s office said he violated probation on April 8, 2002, and was re-sentenced to another year in county jail. (http://www.pakdestiny.com)
