Fox News: A teenage cast member of the "Harry Potter" movies has appeared in a London court and admitted to growing marijuana.

Jamie Waylett pleaded guilty to growing the drug during a hearing Thursday at City of Westminster Magistrates' Court.

The 19-year-old Waylett plays school bully Vincent Crabbe in all six installments of the film franchise.

Police found eight bags of cannabis and a knife during a search of a car Waylett was riding in. They then searched his mother's house and found 10 marijuana plants.

Waylett pleaded guilty to producing cannabis, which carries a maximum 14-year sentence. His friend John Innis pleaded guilty to drug possession.

Judge Timothy Workman said the pair would be sentenced Tuesday.

When will these silly teenagers learn?! If you break the law you are more likely to get caught than not…Well, serves him right. He’ll have plenty of time to think about it in jail.

Yes, sure above commenter, he’ll learn his lesson in jail for smoking a harmless plant. But the man who legally drinks and then causes some sort of destruction, when this teen didn’t, he’ll get off with a slap on the wrist. Even for domestic violence…very smart of you. You’re the problem with this society.

The local grocery store will sell alcohol,that will cause some people to be aggressive and hurt there loved ones. I think it is time our law is changed
