Convicted rioter Camille Cacnio charged with breaching probation

Convicted Stanley Cup rioter Camille Cacnio has been charged with breaching the terms of her probation order.

The Richmond resident received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty to taking a pair of pants from the Black & Lee store in downtown Vancouver on June 15, 2011, the night of the riot following Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final between the Canucks and Boston Bruins.

Cacnio’s lawyer, Jason Tarnow, said the entire day has been set aside for the trial, scheduled for March 15.

Although Tarnow would not get into specifics, he said his client was just a few minutes past her curfew time, and that he will be arguing she had a “lawful excuse” to be outside of her home beyond the time of her curfew.

Cacnio’s two-year suspended sentence was handed down on Sept. 7, 2012, and for the first 12 months of her suspended sentence, she’s barred from being outside her residence between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m., except for medical emergencies or unless she has written permission from her probation officer.

She was also required to perform 150 hours of community service.

Cacnio, a scholarship winner in 2007, admitted that she's the young woman pictured at the 1:33 mark of a YouTube video at http://tinyurl.com/CacnioRiot.
