WASHINGTON - A federal probation office is looking into the case of the anti-Muslim filmmaker whose work is inflaming the Middle East.

The probation department in the central district of California is reviewing the case of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, who was previously convicted on bank fraud charges and was banned from using computers or the Internet as part of his sentence. He's still on probation.

Karen Redmond is spokeswoman for the administrative office of the U.S. courts. She says if the probation department determines Nakoula violated terms of his release, a judge could send him back to prison.

Nakoula pleaded no contest in 2010, was sentenced to 21 months in federal prison and was ordered not to use computers or the Internet for five years without approval from his probation officer.
