Harry Potter star Waylett sentenced

Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett has apologised to the film's fans after being ordered to undertake unpaid community work as punishment for growing cannabis.

Waylett, 20, who plays Vincent Crabbe in the popular films, admitted in court to growing 10 plants at his mother's home.

The judge told the actor, who marked his birthday on the same day: "Mr Waylett, I accept that the cultivation of this cannabis was on a small scale, and this was not in any way a commercial venture on your part. Nevertheless you used a sophisticated growing system to do so. I give you credit for pleading guilty at the earliest opportunity, your co-operation with police and the fact that you are, until now, a man of good character. I propose to deal with this by imposing a sentence of 120 hours of unpaid work."
