Jamie Waylett Jailed—Harry Potter Actor Sentenced to Two Years in Prison


Judge Simon Carr sentenced Jamie Waylett, who played Vincent Crabbe in the popular Harry Potter series, to two years in prison for his participation in the London riots of 2011.

Waylett, who also has a previous conviction for growing marijuana, was part of a gang that targeted North London on August 8. London’s Wood Green Court jury found Waylett guilty of violent disorder on Tuesday.

He was acquitted of a charge of intending to destroy or damage property with the firebomb he had in his possession when he was arrested. The 22-year-old admitted to carrying a looted bottle of champagne from a supermarket during the riots, but was not charged for this misdemeanor.
