LONDON (AP) - A judge has sentenced a cast member of the "Harry
Potter" films to 120 hours of community service for growing marijuana.

Twenty-year-old Jamie Waylett, who plays school bully Vincent Crabbe in the magical movie franchise, pleaded guilty to producing the drug at a court hearing last week.

Prosecutors say police found 10 marijuana plants growing in a bedroom at Waylett's mother's London house.

Producing cannabis carries a maximum 14-year sentence. Judge Timothy Workman said Tuesday that he accepted the cultivation was
on a small scale and for Waylett's own use.

He said the actor had been, "until now, a man of good character."
