'Harry Potter' Star

TWO YEARS in Prison

for London Riots

3/20/2012 10:33 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Jamie Waylett -- the guy who played Vincent Crabbe in the "Harry Potter" movies -- has been sentenced to spend TWO YEARS in a British prison for participating in the London riots last year.

As we previously reported, cops believed Waylett was packing a Molotov cocktail while looting champagne from a drug store during the London riots on August 8th.

Waylett was later identified by video footage after the incident  ... and cops eventually arrested him on Sept. 20.

Waylett -- who has a previous conviction on record stemming from a drug-related incident -- was found guilty of violent disorder ... but he was acquitted on the charge of intending to destroy property with a fire bomb.

No word on when Waylett is expected to begin his sentence.

Jamie, prison food is pretty lousy, just think of it as a two year weight loss camp.

This guy gets 2 years for this, if you have 4 grams of coke in Colorado you get a slap on the wrist.

Can't Harry Potter use a spell to overturn the conviction? Maybe he will get explosive diarrhea like Conrad Murry and try to get out in a few months.

Too bad he wasn't a blonde, drug addicted, piece of white trailer trash with enough cocaine on her person to be charged with "distribution" quantities...then he would have got probation.

Too bad he wasn't arrested in the United States where we all know stars/celebrities receive preferential treatment within the justice system, even though it is a direct violation of our constitution. Ahh, the land of the free.

TMZ, for an outfit that focuses on celebrities you have no real understanding of what the term "star" means. He was in no way, shape, or form a star of any of the Harry Potter movies. He was an actor with a role in the movies... big difference.
