Police arrested choudary and three other influential radicals, after they lent their names to an oath of allegiance to ISIS which was posted on the internet.
Reportedly Police officers testified during the trial that they viewed Choudary as a key force in radicalising young muslims, and he had been the "mouthpiece" of Omar Bakri Mohammed - the founder of the banned extremist group ALM.
The preacher voiced controversial views on Sharia law, and he was able to build up a following of thousands through social media, demonstration and lectures around the world.
