(NYDAILYNEWS) — An imam who made headlines for trashing a film shown at the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is facing prison time in a tax cheat scam, the Daily News has learned.

Sheik Mostafa Elazabawy, a retired NYCHA employee who also heads Masjid Manhattan, faces up to 15 years in prison for swindling at least $140,000 while working as a “tax preparer” at a Hell’s Kitchen Ethiopian restaurant in a side business, prosecutors said.

He also allegedly failed to clear the side gig with the Conflicts of Interests Board while working at the city Housing Authority.
