A local Stanley Cup rioter won't be spending any time in jail for taking a pair of pants from a Black & Lee store in downtown Vancouver on June 15, 2011.

Richmond's Camille Cacnio pled guilty to participating in a riot and on Friday was handed a suspended two-year sentence and ordered to perform 150 hours of community service, according to CTV News.

The Crown had asked for a sentence of between 15 and 30 days in jail.

Cacnio was charged earlier this year, but her link to the riots following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals between the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins, came shortly after the riots.

Her involvement also sparked her to write a blog about what happened, and led to a severe public backlash.
