A British judge has sentenced a cast member of the "Harry Potter" films to 120 hours of community service for growing marijuana. Jamie Waylett, 20, who plays school bully Vincent Crabbe in the magical movie franchise, pleaded guilty at a court hearing last week. Prosecutors said police found 10 marijuana plants growing in a bedroom at Waylett's mother's house in London.

Producing cannabis carries a maximum 14-year sentence. Judge Timothy Workman said Tuesday that he accepted that 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."
