"A mentally ill man who vandalized the Islamic Cultural Center and a nearby northeast Fresno business on Christmas Day was sentenced Friday to probation and a program that will ensure he gets the proper medical treatment, his lawyer said.

Asif Mohammad Khan, who sat in Fresno County Superior Court with his parents, was accepted in Behavior Health Court, a post-conviction program for the mentally ill.

In the program, Khan, 29, will meet regularly with a probation officer and a therapist to ensure he takes his medication, attends doctor appointments and self-help meetings, and stays out of trouble, said Fresno defense lawyer Gerald Schwab Jr., who represents Khan."
