Anti-Islam filmmaker gets jail time

The man accused of making an anti-Islam film that fueled violence in the Middle East will spend a year behind bars, but it's not for the movie.

The sentencing stems from a 2010 violation probation in a bank fraud case. Mark Youssef got international attention following protests against his film. 

The movie, "Innocence of Muslims," portrays the prophet Mohammed as ruthless killer and child molester. 

Protests erupted in nearly a dozen countries.
