Anas El-Beltagy, the son of senior Muslim Brotherhood figure Mohamed El-Beltagy, was sentenced on Saturday to five years in prison on violence-related charges in universities.
Anas El-Beltagy, along with two other men -- all students -- were arrested in December 2013 and accused of rioting and violent acts in Cairo University and Ain Shams University.
The men were allegedly in possession of birdshot pellets, live broadcast cameras and banners bearing anti-army and pro-Brotherhood slogans.
The sentence can still be appealed.
His father, Mohamed El-Beltagy, was arrested in August 2013 as part of a broad crackdown on Brotherhood figures and supporters after the ouster of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
Mohamed El-Beltagy is currently being tried in a number of criminal cases. He has so far received a life in prison sentence and a death sentence.
These sentences can also still be appealed.
