(Reuters) The California man behind a crude anti-Islam film was sent back to jail for a year on Wednesday over probation violations stemming from his role in the video.

The Egyptian-born Coptic Christian, who has been publicly identified as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, but whose legal name is Mark Basseley Youssef, admitted to several probation violations during a hearing in US District Court in Los Angeles.

At least one violation involved his use of an alias, Sam Bacile, a name that several actors from the film said he used in producing the video, which was circulated on line under several titles, including “The Innocence of Muslims.”
