Mugshots owner in jail for false claims about terrorist funding

Mugshots Bar and Grill was shutdown by the city of Toledo last week.

The owner of the North Toledo bar where six patrons were gunned down on Feb. 5 was sentenced to six months in jail on Thursday for unrelated charges.

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, 31-year-old Hallal Joseph pleaded guilty in September to falsely denying his knowledge of a terrorist funding operation to federal authorities. His sister and her husband reportedly tried to send money to a terrorist group overseas.

The federal judge ordered that Hallal serve the maximum sentence on Monday.

Less than a week ago, the city of Toledo was granted a temporary restraining order to shut down Joseph's business, Mugshots Bar and Grill.
