Initially incarcerated in Evin Prison in September 2012, he was sentenced to eight years in prison on 27 January 2013, on charges of undermining national security through private religious gatherings in Christian homes in Iran in the early 2000s. In November 2013, the Iranian regime moved him to Rajai Shahr prison, outside Karaj.
