A co-conspirator in a plot that threatened South Park creators Matt Stone and Trey Parker
with death over an episode that featured the Muslim prophet Muhammed
dressed as a bear was sentenced Friday to 138 months in prison.

Authorities said that Jesse Curtis Morton, who went by the name Younus Abdullah Muhammed,
created Revolution Muslim in 2007 and used the organization’s website
