Harry Potter Actor Jailed
March 21, 2012 by staff
Harry Potter Actor Jailed, Actor Jamie Waylett, who played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in six of the Harry Potter films, was jailed for two years on Tuesday for being part of a mob during last summer’s riots in London.
Waylett, 22, was found guilty of violent disorder by a jury at London’s Wood Green Crown Court, the Press Association reported.
But the actor, who had already admitted swigging from a stolen bottle of champagne during the rioting, was cleared of intending to destroy or damage property with a petrol bomb he was pictured holding.
Waylett, who already had a previous conviction for cannabis possession, was with a gang of at least four people who went into the Chalk Farm area of north London last August on the third day of violence in the capital.
He was captured on CCTV at various points during the evening, often with a hood over his head.
The footage shows him accepting a bottle of champagne from a rioter who had just looted the supermarket he was standing outside.
Judge Simon Carr sentenced the actor to two years for violent disorder and 12 months for handling stolen goods, to run concurrently.
