Zachary Adam Chesser, the 21 year old who called for violent jihad against SOUTH PARK creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, was sentenced to 25 years in jail, reports CNN. Chesser admitted that he posted threats against writers of the animated series following the episode featuring the Prophet Mohammed in a bear suit. His posts included the home addresses of writers, saying that like-minded people should "pay them a visit."

In October, he pleaded guilty to three charges — providing material support to terrorists, communicating threats and soliciting others to threaten violence. Chesser said in court, "I accept full responsibility for all of my actions, and I would like to take the opportunity to express remorse."

Chesser was born in the U.S. and became a Muslim during high school. He said he did try to join Somalia-based Al-Shabaab, which is considered a terrorist group by the U.S. State Department.
