According to Anatolian, the judge in Istanbul ruled "not to postpone the punishment" for Nisanyan because he has a record of prior convictions.
Nisanyan served 11 months in prison a decade ago for committing building violations in the touristic Turkish village of Sirince, where he owned and operated a hotel.
Prior to becoming an outspoken political blogger and newspaper columnist, Nisanyan was a prominent travel writer and hotelier who promoted the boutique hotel and bed-and-breakfast industry in Turkey.
He said he is currently appealing a dozen convictions with sentences that add up to 20 years in jail.
During his previous prison term, Nisanyan wrote and published a dictionary of Turkish etymology, a study of the history of words.
