London, July 17 (ANI): Harry Potter actor Jamie Waylett is facing jail after he confessed of having a cannabis farm in his bedroom.
Waylett, 19, who played the role of Hogwarts bully Vincent Crabbe in the hit films, was arrested after cops stopped him and pal John Innis in an Audi.
Innis, 20, was caught with eight bags of cannabis and a butterfly knife along with a digital camera containing pictures of cannabis plants.
Waylett has admitted that the pictures were taken in his bedroom.
The cops raided the flat he shares with his mum in Kilburn, North London, and discovered ten cannabis plants growing inside two tents in his bedroom.
The actor also confessed to buying seeds and growing the plants for personal use, Westminster Magistrates’ Court heard.
Cultivating cannabis carries a maximum sentence of 14 years in prison. But Waylett’s lawyer Cheryl Rudden urged the court not to “make an example of him” and wreck his career,” reports the Sun.
She added: “He has co-operated fully.”
However, District Judge Timothy Workman called for reports before he sentences the pair next Tuesday.
He warned them: “The production of cannabis is a serious matter. I’m not giving you any promises.” (ANI)
