article imageHarry Potter star to be punished for rioting in London

By Anne Sewell     Mar 21, 2012 in Entertainment
London - British actor, Jamie Waylett, who starred in 6 Harry Potter movies will have to get used to a brand new set. He is charged with aiding in the recent London riots.
The 22-year-old actor, who played Vincent Crabbe in the Harry Potter films has been jailed for his 'role' in the London riots. The actor appeared at London's Wood Green Crown Court recently and was found guilty of violent disorder by the jury.
RT reports that while he was cleared of the charge of intending to damage or destroy property with a fire bomb, Judge Simon Carr said: "A considerable amount has been said about what happened over those few days.
"Anyone watching the footage in this case can only imagine the mayhem that took place on the streets.
"You chose to go out on to the streets on what was the third day of the violence."
"The footage shows you in the near vicinity of a Sainsbury's in Camden which was being looted.
"You were pictured on a number of occasions with a bottle full of petrol with a rag as a wick.
"I accept entirely the jury's verdict that you did not throw or have any intention of throwing it but merely being in possession of it would have been terrifying to anyone who saw you."
Waylett was part of a gang of at least four people who went into Chalk Farm on 8 August 2011.
Apparently this is not Waylett's first crime, as he has a previous conviction on the charge of cannabis possession. Relating to his latest crime, he did admit to "swigging from a bottle of champagne" stolen from a store in the riots.
Waylett's lawyer, Emily Dummatt said in court that her client had become a "withered actor by the age of 22".
