'Harry Potter' Star

TWO YEARS in Prison

for London Riots

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.

If you have been in one of the most famous movie series of all time as a bad guy, it might not be a good idea to commit crimes where you will be video taped. Is it illegal just to be stupid?

WTF! This guy is an actor and part of a multi billion dollar franchise that will leave him SET for the rest of his life and he needs to loot. What a little s***bag. I hope a couple of bull queers rape the little punk!

Now that is justice, if it where here in America a celeb would get 20 hour volunteer time and 6 months probation. They would also profit from it by selling "leaks by a person close to them" to celebsites and magazines.

My heart goes out to him. I understand why some people looted, though I do not condone it. But the injustice being that some people have money and others have none. So a chance in life is a chance to maybe own a TV or a nicer pair of shoes. No one was seriously hurt. And Cameron did promise the student fees would not go ahead only to see they were being pushed through when in power.

Why couldn't he wait to get arrested until after the final movie?! It's his fault Goyle was killed and Blaise Zabini was in the room of requirement instead of Crabbe! Grr! Send him to the dementors! :P

He should have gotten a lot more time! Looting is one thing burning the place down is a whole other thing.

Molotov ****tail??? Yeah right. Cops in Britain are big liars too, huh? Britain is not a model country. They censor media and have little freedom...remember we revolted against them to get freedom. People rioted because of unfair economic repression and police oppression in a corrupt system filled with bribery and payoffs. This is why they need all the cameras...because the people are demanding freedom again.
