Beauty pageant contestant pleads guilty in Vancouver riot
Former Miss Congeniality Sophie Carmelle Laboissonniere has pled guilty to participating in a riot in connection with the June 15, 2011 Stanley Cup riot in Downtown Vancouver following Game 7 of the finals.
Laboissonniere's Richmond lawyer, David Baker, appeared on her behalf to enter the guilty plea. She was also originally charged with breaking and entering.
Baker could not be reached for comment by press time Tuesday afternoon.
The guilty plea comes nearly four months prior to her scheduled trial date of April 22.
Instead, she'll be appearing in Vancouver provincial court on May 27, following the completion of her pre-sentencing report.
Laboissonniere, 22, won the crown at the Miss Coastal Vancouver pageant.
