Jamie Waylett of Harry Potter franchise fame has been sentenced to two years in prison for participating in the infamous London riots last year.

Authorities in Britain say Waylett was packing a Molotov cocktail while looting champagne from a drug store during the London riots August 8.

The actor was eventually identified in video footage taken during the incident, leading police officials to arrested Jamie Waylett on September 20.

Waylett, who has a previous conviction on record stemming from a drug-related incident, was found guilty of violent disorder and sentenced to two years.

He was acquitted on the charge of intending to destroy property with a fire bomb, so that's something. That two year term could have easily been 5-10.

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