"Harry Potter" Actor Jailed

Judge Simon Carr sentenced Jamie Waylett, who played Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in six of the Harry Potter films, to two years in jail.

Prosecutors said Waylett was part of a small gang that took part in the riots in north London on Aug. 8. A jury found Waylett guilty of violent disorder, but acquitted him of another charge of intending to destroy or damage property with a fire bomb he was holding. The 22-year-old had already admitted swigging from a bottle of Champagne stolen from a supermarket during the riots.

The judge told Waylett that he would be eligible for release from jail after one year.

Waylett has a previous conviction for growing marijuana.

The star, who had a goatee and shaved head, nodded to the public in the gallery as he was led down to the jail cells.
