'Harry' Pothead Gets Community Service

7/21/2009 2:39 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie WaylettThe kid who plays Vincent Crabbe in the 'Harry Potter' movies just lucked out in London court -- getting 120 hours of community service for a drug charge that could have scored him 14 years in the slammer.

Jamie Waylett -- who appears in all six "Potter" flicks -- was busted back in April when cops found eight bags of weed in the car in which he was riding. Cops searched his mom's place after and found 10 marijuana plants.

Waylett pleaded guilty last week. The judge yesterday said he accepted that the cultivation was on a small scale and for the actor's own use.

UPDATE: We're told by the Ministry of Justice in London, his community service could include clearing graveyards, cleaning graffiti, picking up trash, chopping down overgrown trees clearing, leaves and clearing ditches.

This article established an example that nobody is above Law whoever may be he/she is. We all should obey the rules and regulations of Law. It is the power of Law which maintains peace and harmony in a Country. You may be a rich and famous person ,but you have to obey law.It is the Law which also protects you. If a person is found guilty then that person should be penalized. But before penalizing anybody it is the duty of the Law department to verify everything.

Thank God for creating all plants. Lock up those who sell hard drugs like Marlboro, and Chivas Regal.

Ahh leave the fella alone. Would you rather he had been shooting herion, smoking crack or better hooked on prescription pills? We got bigger fish to fry than kids smoking pot. Pot being illegal is no different than prohibition. Buncha folks who dont seem to understand if you legalize pot. The people who dont smoke it.......dont have too. The same with alcohol being in damn near every store and alot of folks dont drink. Folks are getting a bad wrap over nothing.

It's good to see he's started growing at an early age. I didn't start "growing" until my 60's and there are so many strains, so little time! Someday you all will look back at this prohibition of cannabis as the most costly and inhumane acts ever conceived by man. Free Eddy Lepp and thousands of others!
