    Default What happened to Muse (Barkhad Abdi) From Captain Phillips Movie?

    Can anyone tell me what happened to the leader of the pirate gang that captured Phillips? I can't even seem to find the guy's name.... in the movie credit's the actor is "Barkhad Abdi" but his character (the real life leader) is just named "Muse".


    Does anyone know what happened to "muse" after the incident?


    I'm asking because, according to the book, the "leader" got off the lifeboat before the seals attacked to "negotiate" with the US Navy and never returned. So does anyone know what happened to him after he left the lifeboat??

    According to Wikipedia:

    The surviving pirate, Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse, was held on the USS Bonhomme Richard and was eventually flown to the U.S. for trial. In a federal courtroom in New York City, prosecutors brought charges that included piracy, conspiracy to seize a ship by force, and conspiracy to commit hostage-taking.[33] Muse's lawyers asked that he be tried as a juvenile, alleging he was either 15 or 16 years old at the time of the hostage taking, but the court ruled Muse was not a juvenile and would be tried as an adult.[34][35] Muse later pled guilty to piracy charges and was handed a prison sentence of 33 years and nine months.[36][37]

    Yup, via Reuters:

    The real Muse, whose full name is Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse and is now 23, is in a U.S. prison in Terre Haute, Indiana, serving a more than 33-year sentence handed down in 2010 for his role in the hijacking.
