A Stanley Cup rioter who smashed windows at a downtown Vancouver business has been sentenced but he won’t spend any time behind bars, Vancouver’s News1130 is reporting.
Twenty-seven-year-old Richard MacMillan has been given a six-month conditional term that includes a curfew, counselling, and a ban on using drugs and alcohol.
He’ll also be on probation for a year and must stay away from Starbucks outlets.
On the night of the riot in June of 2011, Mr. MacMillan smashed the windows of a Starbucks, saying later he wanted to show contempt for corporate greed.
The judge decided against jail time because Mr. MacMillan has a history of depression, mental illness, and drug abuse.
The judge says Mr. MacMillan has good prospects and has shown remorse.
