21-year-old Zachary Chesser was today sentenced to 25 years in prison for trying to help a Somalia militant group and for making threats against Matt Stone and Trey Parker of "South Park," because of the show's depiction of the Prophet Mohammad.

The episode last year on the cable channel Comedy Central showed Mohammad in a bear suit.
