CERRITOS, CA (AP) - The California man behind the anti-Muslim movie that has inflamed the Middle East has obtained legal counsel.

Escorted by Los Angeles County sheriff's deputies, attorney Steve Seiden emerged from the Cerritos, Calif., home of Nakoula Basseley Nakoula after a lengthy meeting Friday afternoon.

Seiden says he's been asked to consult with Nakoula about matters he's not at liberty to discuss.

Seiden said to reporters, "You're keeping his young children prisoners in their home because they're afraid to come out."

Seiden said he had no further comment, but asked the throng of news media to leave.
