LOS ANGELES, Oct. 10 (Xinhua) -- A Southern Calif.-based man who was responsible for the making of anti-Muslim film " Innocence of Muslims" denied on Wednesday that he violated eight allegations of probation terms stemming from a bank fraud case.
U.S. District Judge Christina Snyder has scheduled an evidentiary hearing for Nov. 9.
Mark Basseley Youssef, who was previously known as Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, insisted at a short proceeding at a downtown Los Angeles courtroom that contrary to what the federal prosecutors have alleged, he did not use various aliases or make false statements last month to the officer overseeing his court-ordered probation in the 2010 case.
Youssef, 55, who lived in Cerritos, Calif., had remained in hiding after a 14-minute clip of the controversial film posted on YouTube sparked waves of violent protests across the Islamic world.
He was ordered by a federal magistrate judge last month to be held without bail,deeming him a flight risk and a danger to the community.
